Bike Chandelier - Tommy Boutique NYC

On a recent ride through the West Village in Manhattan, I stopped in at the new Tommy Boutique at 375 Bleeker Street and discovered yet another creative approach to upcycling discarded bicycle parts. This free-form “chandelier” is constructed of steel frames wired with vanity bulbs. It forms the centerpiece of the 1,000-square-foot shop, which showcases Tommy Hilfiger’s new women’s and men’s collections for a younger, less buttoned-downed crowd.

If this colorful assemblage inspires a desire to acquire a recycled ride, then walk a couple of blocks west to Hudson Urban Bicycles at 139 Charles Street to explore a bounty of new and used city bikes, plus accessories. HUB is offering 20 percent off on used bikes through Christmas. Jack Spade at 400 Bleeker Street also includes a modest inventory of vintage bicycles among its apparel and accessories.

One Response to bike frames are a fixture at new boutique

  1. Amazing how one can recycle and repurpose things–turning bike frames into art like that. Some of the bikes you have featured recently qualify as art in and of themselves. I love that vanilla bike from one of your recent posts!
