Barneys New York has created its most relevant window to date, filling Manhattan’s Madison Avenue displays with spot-on replicas from Hood By Air’s spring ’16 presentation.
The ornate sculptures took six months to complete, as Barneys NY’s site outlines, beginning with a 3D body scan and complex plaster casting for each of Oliver’s models. Once Yoshimoto’s team created a positive mold, the “master mold,” they replicated models’ original features using tinted silicon, human hair brows, custom dentures and lifelike glass eyeballs. Final details included hand-painted tattoos—a daunting undertaking—hair fashioned to resemble Yusef Williams’ original runway wigs and those babycore Dolly Cohen-designed pacifiers.
