Pop sensation Lady Gaga unveiled her holiday workshop in Barneys flagship store on Madison Avenue in New York City. Lady Gaga’s Workshop is filled to the brim with chocolates, toys and other items related to her childhood, career and her life as a whole.
The Workshop is Barney’s in-store holiday shop, conceived, designed and christened by Lady Gaga herself. It is 5,500 square feet of bright colors, crazy shapes and a huge cartoon statute of the singer in a pinup pose surrounded by jagged mirrors and sitting atop thousands of black plastic discs. The Gaga Store sells items like iPhone and iPad covers, stiletto-heel holiday stockings, lollipops and leather jackets for kids, all etched with her logo.
Taking over the fifth floor of Barneys, the store also has a seasonal window displayed created by Gaga and stylist Nicola Formichetti.
Gaga said, “It’s a ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ moment. We wanted it all to be whimsical and fun, with a sense of art and fashion.” According to the superstar, Christmas has always been a special time in her “traditional Italian house,” where the smell of food cooking all day is one of her fondest childhood memories.
Formichetti said, “This was very personal and very emotional for us.” Formichetti also helps design Gaga’s concert costumes and personal wardrobe.
In the candy section of the shop, you can find cookies shaped like little monsters and rock candy necklaces. Inside the boudoir, there are hair bows and hologram-effect nail polishes. If you’re in the market for Gaga toys, you can find plush monsters riding a train while over in the jewelry section there are chunky necklaces and bracelets from Erickson Beamon and Pamela Love.
Gaga insists that the Workshop has a charitable aspect to it, so for each product bought from the Workshop or online, 24% of the sale will be donated to her anti-bullying Born This Way Foundation.
The Workshop will be open through January 2.
