The Madison Avenue WindowsEdit

Gaga's Workshop

Lady Gaga's vision for the Madison windows was to create individual, magical holiday environments inspired by music, art and fashion. Directed by Nicola Formichetti in collaboration with Barneys Creative Director, Dennis Freedman, the windows have been divided into fourthemes: 'Gaga Constellation,' 'Gaga Machine,' 'Gaga's Boudoir,' and 'Gaga's Crystal Cave' each with their own unique reference to Lady Gaga.

“For my first ever window designs, it’s an honor to be collaborating with the prestigious Barneys’ brand and its creative history,” said Nicola Formichetti.

Gaga's Boudoir Edit

Working with renowned hairstylist and Gaga collaborator, Bob Recine, the window is a surrealist take on Lady Gaga's own personal boudoir. Constructed entirely out of hair, the room is filled with references of hair styles and fashions from past Gaga moments.

Gaga's Crystal CaveEdit

Turning the space into a mysterious ice world, the window is made up of light installations and a mermaid sculpture reminiscent of Gaga.

Gaga Machine Edit

The theme of this window plays with the idea of Lady Gaga physically morphing into a machine. In this case the machine being a motorcycle in the shape of Lady Gaga's body.

Gaga ConstellationEdit

Working with Q4, a NYC-based experiential digital agency, the window will feature a new collaborative film by director Tim Richardson and creative director, Nicola Formichetti. The interactive short film is sponsored by a White Label Product with post production by The Mill, screen technology by Prysm, and interactive experience design by Moving Image & Content and The Science Project.
