This holiday season, New York City’s famed store Barney’s and all its shoppers will be having a very Gaga Christmas.
Mark Lee, Barney’s CEO, announced on Monday (Aug. 15) that singer Lady Gaga and her creative team (namely, artists Eli Sudbrack and Christophe Hamaide Pierson and Gaga’s stylist Nicola Formichetti) will have free reign to build their version of “Santa’s Workshop” at the store. An entire floor (the one that happens to house the men’s department) will be given over to their vision, along with Barney’s famous window displays.
In addition, a cartoon of Gaga with long blue hair and long yellow nails wearing a red jumpsuit will be featured on Barney’s holiday shopping bags and a line of Gaga’s Workshop gift items will be produced, with a portion of the proceeds going to the charity of her choice.
Wonder what Simon Doonan thinks about this. Or, for that matter, David Sedaris.
