Earlier this week I visited V Magazine in New York. Their office is well-placed on Mercer St. in SoHo alongside the likes of Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang and Proenza. Their lobby is a mini museum of limited edition, collaborative products. I started by taking cell phone shots of the room, but when I got to the Goyard trunk, perfectly merchandised with custom Visionaire Louis Vuitton, I had to pull out my real camera.
While I was there, Steven showed me their newest piece of art: the V Magazine x David Yurman collaboration limited-edition box set featuring the V88 The Music Issue and a custom-designed David Yurman bracelet.
Only 300 of these editions exist (mine is #117, as you can see) and a portion of the proceeds go to The VH1 Save the Music Foundation which aims to restore music programs in public schools across America.
Last night I rearranged my bookshelves to give the signed box prime real estate.
