The Renaissance x Missoni

Ever wondered what Michelangelo's David would look like clad in Missoni's signature chevron zig-zag print?

Nope. Neither have I. But the iconic statue was given a makeover by Spanish artist Eladio de Mora in collaboration with Luca Missoni, as part of Madrid’s Fashion’s Night Out earlier this year - and now his steel, fibreglass and polyester resin replica of the statue (featuring a jumpsuit supplied by Missoni), will be on display in New York.

Following exhibits in Madrid and Barcelona, the statue - which measures five meters tall and has the same dimensions as the original - has been installed on West 14th Street in the Meatpacking District and can be seen (and instagramed) until September.
