Over the past few years, Rag & Bone has commissioned street artist to cover its Elizabeth Street wall with everything from not cuddly lions to an astronaut sitting on a couch. Since most of those were later covered in other, unauthorized tags, the store has decided to do a little something different this time around.
Bowery Boogie snapped the above photo of the new mural, which reads: "This Is a Designated Graffiti Area" underneath the brand's logo. So far, all the guest tags are just a bunch of squiggles, but as always, it's only a matter of time before some adds a stray "r" to the end of the word "bone."
