Last Thursday, fashion celebrated the opening of New York-based milliner Heather Huey’s two new collections and ten day pop-up shop at Building Fashion. Located at 504 W. 24th Street under the Highline, Huey paired with the design firm Urban A&O to convert the HL23 tin into an art installation space with a wall of retail. The first installation, Cocoon, consists entirely of scrap felt meticulously sewn together to create organic body sculptures and headwear. In the second, titled Asylum, Huey revisits her widely recognized black cage collection (worn by Daphne Guinness and Lara Stone); this time the exoskeletons are entirely in white.
