BANANA REPUBLIC + NEW MUSEUM/NADA TOTES
After a successful collaboration with The New Museum and a generous sponsorship of NADA (New Art Dealers Alliance) during Art Basel Miami, ultra trendy retailer Banana Republic has decided to create light-weight cotton totes (to be sold exclusively during Art Basel Miami and the New Museum gift shop) with all proceeds benefiting NADA and the New Museum). Only six out of eighty-five will have their designs splashed (cutesy phrases such as "hell yes" and "i need money") across the totes and they are follows: Chris Caccamise from Eleven Rivington in New York, Kon Trubkovich from Museum 52 in London/New York, Slawek Pawszak from Czarna Gallery in Poland, Olivier Babin from Frank Elbaz Gallery in Paris, Shinro Ohtake from Take Ninagawa in Tokyo and William O'Brien from Shane Campbell Gallery in Chicago. Please be sure to visit the New Museum gift shop while in NYC (or visit the online store) and become the chicest of chic in 2009 whether you are shopping at the market or just bouncing around the city!
