Framed on Fifth | The Juicy Vertical Garden

When Kate McCollough recently saw one of landscape architect Patrick Blanc’s “vertical gardens” she immediately thought: Fifth Avenue. It seemed the perfect backdrop for all the tropical foliage and jungle critters popping up across our summer collection.

The labor intensive installation covers 1500 square feet and the rigging was nuts. McCollough tells us she used a rigid plastic net, attached moss to it, and then zip-tied about 800 pieces of foliage—palms, birds of paradise, purple orchids, ferns, grasses—wild!
