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?
