BIRKENSTOCK and Barneys New York celebrated the launch and US debut of the BIRKENSTOCK BOX x Barneys New York collaboration, a mobile retail concept located at 90 Gansevoort Street directly across from the Whitney Museum of American Art.
A distinguished crowd gathered on Saturday, September 9th to fete the occasion.
