The consistent powers of creativity displayed in the gallery-ish window at Moschino on West 14th Street have us wondering how we ever survived window shopping in MePa before the store's arrival last August.
In line with one of the favorite motifs, hearts a-plenty, Moschino has rigged up a paper mannequin Queen of Hearts accompanied by foot soldiers of different suits and bearing arms which could do no more harm than inflict a nasty paper cut. There seems to be no underlying message to the work, except to showcase a truly detailed black silk dress on a background of stark white and red. It did the (card) trick however, making us step up for a closer look and walk away wishing we had some more paper in our wallet for the purchase of the thing.
