Painting the Town
Designers and artists alike flock to New York City for inspiration. In the latest iteration of Instagramable street style-meets high style moments, New York-based designer Tanya Taylor has partnered with the 100 GATES Project. Shining a spotlight on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the project connects artists with businesses to splash brightly colored murals on the city’s iconic roll-down security gates. Taylor’s colorful fashion designs translate in the form of vibrant art on the gates scattered throughout the downtown neighborhood: Her multicolored, bold patterns bring life to the otherwise dull metal entryways. “Our collaboration with the 100 GATES Project was born out of the desire to see our handpainted prints and vibrant color live outside of just the collection,” Taylor says. “Couple that with the 100 GATES Project’s mission to bring art to the public and empower emerging female artists, and we knew right away that it was the perfect match.”
Look for the floral prints from her fall 2016 collection in full bloom adorning the Lucky Jack’s Bar & Lounge gate at 129 Orchard St., or the blue and bursts of red in Taylor’s Weslyn top ($395) and Rita skirt ($357) on Isaac Sultan & Sons’ gate at 34 Ludlow St. We think they are just the thing to create your own street-style social media moment. 212.226.0236
