Bergdorf Goodman x Sean Slaney

Bergdorf Goodman has collaborated with New York City-based artist Sean Slaney on a run of three windows. Slaney spray painted stencil patterns on seamless paper for David Hoey, window director at Bergdorf Goodman. Some of these were draped like a pulled back curtain.


'I have freelanced for many years at Bergdorf Goodman building props, painting backdrops and installing sets. Frequently I would show the window director David Hoey my personal work and he expressed interest in doing stencil art windows,' says Slaney. 


The team decided to work with stencils themselves, with Slaney drawing a mix of unrelated things – animals, objects, vehicles, fauna etc. 'I made stencils and then spray-painted wacky patterns that were about shapes working together and bright colours on seamless paper. I then brought the large scale patterned paper to Bergdorf Goodman and hung them on the wall to show the scale and the collaboration was born. David Hoey came up with the presentation of layering seamless paper draped in an artful way,' says Slaney.
