To celebrate the release of the collaboration between American workwear legend Carhartt and Adam Kimmel, Barneys housed a unique live installation at their space. Artists George Herms and art collective Paintallica got out the power tools and torches for an exhibition at Barneys to provide one hell of an atmosphere filled with sawdust and flying metal-shards. Those present had a chance to personalize tree trunks with designs of their choice while viewing the pants, jackets, hats, and t-shirts in the collection. Barney’s also offered free-flowing Pabst Blue Ribbon guzzled out of gas containers, proving that some on hand may have ignored the warning to not operate machinery while consuming alcohol. Enjoy the recap video above.
