Ever on-the-hunt for the elusive Pink Thing, I was magnetically drawn into the newly-opened Swarovski store on Broadway by their vast display wall of exciting pinkness!
The concept of displaying the brand’s jewelry and small crystal trinkets nestled against a wall lined with various-sized shaped compartments — punctuated by the occasional expressive mannequin — is just genius. Creating a ‘Life-Size Jewel Box’ concept, the store’s transportive design not only provides an immersive shopping experience, it’s obviously also highly Instagram-able.
Located at 542 Broadway in SoHo, the store (which opened in May 2021) is part of Swarovski’sInstant Wonder identity rebranding. And while it’s not shown in this post (for reasons which will be immediately clear) the other half of the store is entirely green. You’ll want to at least pop in when you are in the area.
Randy Polumbo’s delightful Love Stream Trailer installation at Steven Kasher Gallery was one of our favorite exhibits of 2112, so what a special surprise it was to stumble upon Randy’s latest work in the midst of our very ambitious September 11th Art Crawl!
This Hot Pink Blinged Out Cake Mixer sits in the front display window at Georgetown Cupcake on Prince Street in New York City. We heard that it was a gift to one of the owners (they are a pair of sisters, so we are not sure which one owns this awesome thing) from her husband. Wow, nothing says Love to me like the gift of a Hot Pink Swarovski Crystal-studded Cake Mixer. Happy Love! Happy Valentines Day!
