On September 5th Marni opens the doors launching a new store in New York Madison, this store has been represented by exclusive custom made papier machè sculptures of a Fawn. Marni asks Sammy Slabbinck to draw an individual storytelling based on the city and exploring the concept expressed in his specific style.
A fun journey through the amenities of New York City, such as the Moma museum and its pop art collection and Central park, ending in the new Marni boutique at Madison. A entertaining storytelling built and developed with animated collage and the typical surreal aesthetic of Sammy Slabbinck.
