Happening | Phillip Lim Shop Launch and Nobuhiro Nakanishi Installation


To celebrate the launch of his first shop-in-shop in the U.S., Saks Fifth Avenue and W magazine hosted a cocktail reception in honor of designer Phillip Lim on April 24th, 2012.


Guests had the opportunity to experience the new shop and meet the designer while enjoying cocktails and live music by DJ Sebastien Perrin. The excitement only continued with the unveiling of an exclusive art installation by Nobuhiro Nakanishi.


Nobuhiro Nakanishi’s large-scale installations involve ideas of spatial awareness and peculiar time sense. Originally from Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan, Nakanishi studied fine art sculpture and is best known for his layer drawings. The Saks Fifth Avenue installation, Layer Drawing – Sunrise, consists of 50 hanging 100 centimeter square films.
