Artist Metis Atash is known for her Swarovski crystals-encrusted sculptures of little Buddha Babies (which she calls Funkybuddhas) sporting spikey mohawks or embellished with sassy sayings. This pretty Pink one, joyously flipping the bird in a shirt that proclaims “Darling, No is a Full Sentence” (which: truth) was spotted in the Eden Gallery in Soho.
Tomodachi (2020) is the Japanese word for ‘friend.’ This tiny Pink Bulldog‘s friendly appearance is enhanced with a coat of crystals made by Swarovski, an Austrian company that produces crystal glass used in jewelry and optical instruments. Combined with artist David Flores‘ organic contours and intersecting areas of pink and red, the surface of the canine’s body resembles a form of flamboyant camouflage.

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’s Instant 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.
Bergdorf Goodman was an early supporter of CD Greene and first featured his designs in its store windows in June 1990.
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!
