Last fall, Bergdorf Goodman launched the new home collection for Gucci Decor with much fanfare and press and this month, they’re pushing the envelope again. This time with New Orleans pop artist Ashley Longshore who is making history as the first solo female artist to be exhibited on the 7th Floor.
Her extraordinary pieces have taken over the iconic store’s Fifth Avenue windows and a 945 square foot space that typically showcases more traditional home decor brands like Kim Seybert, John Derian and of course, Diane James. From paintings featuring Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly, to diamond rugs, lipstick sculptures and giant champagne corks, Ashley’s eye-catching work is having a moment and her collectors (including Blake Lively and Penelope Cruz) agree.
When asked to describe her aesthetic, this very funny artist came up with “unapologetic, colorful, celebratory, sparkly, and humorous”… And we think this is exactly what the world needs: a little more glittery goodness. We just hope Ashley’s pieces don’t sell out before we get to see them in person.
Happy fabulous Friday!
