“Black Leather Jacket Auction” BarneysPosted: March 15, 2016
In 1986, Barneys hosted an auction of designer/artist embellished Jeans Jackets to fight AIDS. To launch the new downtown Flagship store, Barneys has asked 23 artists and designers to create embellished Black Leather Moto Jackets (Men’s and Women’s) for an online auction with Christie’s. You can bid until March 22nd and the proceeds from the auction are going to the LGBT Center and White Columns.
