Continuing our coverage of all types of store displays, we bring you Strange Mannequins, a series of briefings on odd-looking dummys in shops around town. If you've seen a weirdly-attired or contorted mannequin, do let us know. And if you really want to glaze our doughnut, send some sweet, sweet digi pics along with those emails.
The display artists at Lounge on Broadway between Houston and Prince Streets in Soho must have had a reason for contorting this mannequin so he oddly faces the wall of the store (the goal was probably to highlight the bag). It looks like he's crying in the corner. Or, and we're projecting just a bit with this one, perhaps our friend here is sick of gazing upon the Euro-y spangled sweatshirts, distressed denim and screen-printed tees Lounge is pushing.
