Whether it's describing the inspiration for a particular piece of his crumpled-paper artwork, or explaining how long he spent trying to find just the right pieces of vintage military duffle bag fabric to make a jacket, artist-turned-clothing-designer Greg Lauren knows how to tell a story.
So, if his deconstructed, rumpled, military-meets-formalwear aesthetic is something that appeals to you, it'll be worth heading over to the Barneys New York in Beverly Hills on Saturday, Feb. 26, where Lauren is scheduled to make a personal appearance in support of his debut collection of scarves, jackets, hoodies, T-shirts and footwear.
Lauren will be meeting with customers and talking about his creations on the fourth floor of the Beverly Hills Barneys flagship at 9570 Wilshire Blvd. from 1 to 3 p.m. this Saturday, with additional personal appearances scheduled for Barneys doors in Chicago (March 5) and San Francisco (March 19).
