Last night in New York, Lady Gaga arrived in a fairytale Chanel dress to open the most ambitious Barney's New York holiday display to date. In addition to providing the inspiration for the retailer's seasonal windows at its Madison Avenue flagship, a pop-up shop in-store (and online) called Gaga's Workshop has been set up throughout an entire floor of the store (a first) to sell items related to Gaga's highly designed persona.
The New York Times took note of the "displays of cookies, books, press-on nails and leather jackets, all housed in cartoonish sculptures by the artist Eli Sudbrack, some of which look like her head. 'There’s all sorts of affordable presents here, and they are guilt-free,' (Gaga) said, sipping tea from a pearl-encrusted cup. (Barneys is selling a version of that cup with a matching saucer for $65.)" Take a closer look below.Continue reading...

The Barneys brand now extends to the White House: Simon Doonan, creative director of Barneys New York, was selected earlier this year to organize the public displays for the Obamas' first holiday season in the columned Pennsylvania Avenue mansion.
Barneys can use the increased exposure, on the heels of declaring an end to pre-holiday discounts. Working with the White House is a good way to get it; Michelle Obama's style choices have been meticulously scrutinized, not just by fashionistas, but also top political observers like David Brooks and Maureen Dowd.
Doonan -- also known for his regular New York Observer column -- is the latest in a line of celebrity decorators to make over the White House during holiday-time. During the Clinton Administration, displays were created by the creative services department of Polo Ralph Lauren.Continue reading...
