Fashion Week is behind us and the holidays have yet to roll in, so it’s a welcome calm between two storms. Our new windows arrive in this atmosphere of relative restraint. Installed by David Hoey and his intrepid team, they feature a brilliant array of work from the Jayne Baum Gallery, ranging from hushed minimal abstraction to vivid color photographs.
Marietta Hoferer’s tranquil white on white constructions are the ideal backdrop for the clean lines of a pale Stella McCartney dress, while Bastienne Schmidt’s graphic pink collages are a fine counterpoint to Gareth Pugh’s inventive cape-dress combination. Some works reinforce the tone of the clothes while others provide a sharp contrast of color and form. We’re enjoying the relentless pursuit of modernity by artist and designer alike.
