While some may view the Barneys New York Espresso Gown as a fashion tragedy, others will see it as a display of sheer brilliance, as it embraces the 'green' effort by recycling unwanted espresso foils.
This scintillating display celebrates the 2010 'Foodie Holiday' and commemorates the caricatures of famous chefs sheltered within its Madison Avenue flagship windows. The mannequin was inspired by Anita Ekberg and pays tribute to Italian coffee brand Lillycaffe.
