Recine’s Hair Sculptures for Barneys New York


To celebrate the 60th anniversary of French luxury brand Chloé, American hair stylist and visual artist Recine has transformed the window displays of US department store Barneys New York.

Five iconic Chloé creations feature in the four displays, set among eccentric sculptures made from hair, wood, metal, fabric and other materials. Recine’s exciting and unexpected use of hair reimagines the waste material as a viable fabric.

“We translated hair into something that has nothing to do with hair,” Recine said of the project. “I view hair as a fabric. I don’t differentiate between the fabric of steel, clothing, or hair.”
