Sicis, New York

I came across the Sicis store recently in New York (a few doors away from Dash, the new..ish Kardashian sister's store).  I have seen this store many times and I am always rather amused at their installations which have ranged from garish panels and suspended mannequins a la Cirque de Soleil style.  However, while I'm not a huge fan of their work, they do produce some interesting uses for their mosaics that I couldn't help but stop and capture this for you.  While I could forgive the Gold covered mannequin, I did find myself gasping a little at the shoe shaped bath covered in mosaics too.  It wasn't so much that the bath was covered in mosaics, but the fact that there was a shoe shaped bath...!  I'm left wondering who would actually buy something like this?  Of course what Sicis are doing is creating theatre and interest around their product, but a Shoe shaped bath?  Is this real do we think?

  1. Dear Jonathan,

    in the link address you missed to use SICIS but Bisazza against the post is about SICIS.



Many thanks for leaving your comments which are always most welcome; we are unable to respond to every single one individually but we do read them all.
