Shop Wall-to-Wall Donald Robertson Goodies
He’s taking over STORY in Chelsea this month
Well, this is abnormally exciting. If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of people who’ve been ogling NYC artist Donald Robertson’s Instagram (aka @drawbertson), get ready. You can now own his signature work--like, on a throw pillow.
Robertson is taking over rotating Chelsea boutique STORY for the next several weeks. (Remember its awesome founder we introduced you to?) Through September 20, the shop is selling exclusive, one-time-only Robertson products from hand-painted floor cushions to lipstick-emblazoned iPhone cases.
And we’ve got all the pics to prep your shopping trip.
SHOP ALL THINGS LIPS AND EYES
Two of Robertson’s most prolific doodles are makeup-related (which only makes sense considering his day gig is as a creative director at Estee Lauder). Snag them on floor poufs, throw pillows, wallpaper, cosmetic bags, totes, notebooks, iPhone cases, headphones, Swell bottles, Canada Goose parkas…we could go on…
OR OPT FOR SOMETHING GIRAFFE-RELATED
Why now for this big boutique takeover? Robertson is debuting his first children’s book, Mitford at the Fashion Zoo, where an ambitious giraffe lands an internship with Anna Wintour Panda Summers at VOGUE COVER magazine. Score a copy of the book here or get your dose of Mitford on pillows, chocolate bars, mugs, dog bowls, even Warby Parker glasses cases.
MAKE AN EMOJI SWEATSHIRT
In true Donald Robertson fashion, some component of the store needed to be DIY. So the crew over at Bow & Drape (a hilarious NY-based clothing customizer) have set up an applique-transfer press for making your own sweatshirt with Robertson-created emojis.
OR GET BUTTON-HAPPY
For a cool $2, you can score a button pin at the very least.
THEN TAKE A SELFIE
If you didn’t Instagram it, it didn’t happen. Snap evidence of your haul at the lipstick photo booth.
