A concept by Barneys New York recently made people deathly mad.
The Concept Barneys went for was "Dressed to Kill". It featured mannequins in the windows with designer dresses by Helmut Lang and A.L.C with blood splatter all over the windows and mannequins in defensive positions as in a scary movie. Creative Director Simon Doonan says "The displays were put up while I was out of town and clearly crossed the line". He says "I encourage everyone to be creative".
Truthfully, I like the display ideas. America needs to quit being so prude and understand fashion and whats around us.
Kudos to the creative team!!
