Gaga’s Workshop @ Barneys

Launching November 21 at 11:59pm, the Gaga Workshop will include everything from digital unicorn window displays to sculptures that are either representative or inspired by her, designed by artist Eli Sudbrack, to 170 products, which include but are definitely not limited to chocolate “Poker Face” chips.

The best part? Barneys will be taking the opportunity to donate 25% of all proceeds from the workshop to Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.

Sephora Sensorium

Comprising a series of multifaceted and interactive sensory experiences that go beyond just the act and perception of sniffing perfume, the Sensorium is the world’s first scent museum of its kind. In addition to a momentary stop in a scent-deprivation chamber and a fragrance “flight bar,” visitors also pass through “First Scent,” an audio-visual set-up that coordinates with custom fragrances redolent of early-morning breakfasts, salty beach air and freshly-cut blades of grass—scents that are distinct and recognizable on their own, but often fraught with one’s associations to specific moments and memories.”

Rick Owens on Rick Owens

Fashion designer and king of the international avant-garde offers a narrative into his process from early beginning to cult following.

He has an almost religious absence of a palette enhanced by sublime drapery and elongated silhouettes.

His empire is now complimented by his recent venture into furniture (think ton-and-a-half alabaster bed).

This anthology written by Owens himself includes contributions by such key players as Olivier Zahm co-founded Purple magazine, as well as others.
