Led by Creative Director Alasdhair Willis, the concept for the 2,926 ft² store was developed uniquely for the pop-up space. Taking inspiration from Hunter’s first flagship store, which opened on London’s Regent Street a year ago, the pop-up will also draw on other key references from the progressive British heritage brand, bringing the unmistakable spirit of Hunter to the heart of New York City.

“Jeff Koons has created eight unique wall sculptures that incorporate donated Hermès Birkin bags as ready-made objects on mirrors,” the Koons studio reports. “These new sculptures recall some of Koons’ earliest artworks that he made when he moved to New York as a young artist in the late ’70s and which were on view recently at his retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art.”

The sculpture and the individual bags will be auctioned by Simon de Pury on November 9 in New York, with all proceeds benefitting the United Nations Foundation, Style.com reported.
