Fashion Crave: Greg Lauren

1 of 10

Artist and designer Greg Lauren’s latest retail installation, “Barracks,” is a 30-piece collection of jackets, gowns, and bags sewn from vintage military fabrics. Though Lauren (nephew of Ralph) originally trained as a painter, for the past several years he has become known for his exhibitions that examine clothing as art, from his stitched paper sculptures of classic men’s garments to his repurposing of vintage duffel bags and army pants. The collection ranges from $185 tees to $3,000 coats — including army-tent coats and thigh-high duffel-bag boots — and  each garment is one-of-a-kind, down to the handwritten labels and care tags.

You might find her indulging at Momofuku, or, she is spinning off those calories at Equinox while simultaneously doing homework.
