John Varvatos Enterprises opened his newest boutique in the state-of-the-art Westfield World Trade Center Transportation Hub, designed by internationally acclaimed architect Santiago Calatrava. The store has well-known Varvatos’ sophisticated atmosphere, combined with vintage design.
To commemorate the opening, John Varvatos has collaborated with artist/photographer Karsten Staiger on a digital exhibition of images captured at dizzying heights from the rooftops of NYC buildings. (see the images below)
It has very special meaning to open in the new Santiago Calatrava designed building at the site of the World Trade Center. To me it is a statement of the strength of NYC and a message to everyone on not being intimidated by the evil minority in this crazy world. This represents a strong message of love to all the lives lost and effected by 9/11. We will celebrate our city with Karsten’s striking imagery. – John Varvatos
I’m excited to share my world and photographic adventures from high above New York City with John Varvatos. This collaboration is so serendipitous – I’ve been a fan of his for some time and respect his passion for this great city. – Karsten Staiger
