The retail community decided they would participate in the Gay Pride week in New York City this year. The Ralph Lauren boutique down on Bleecker Street in the West Village features mannequins who are wearing Polo shirts in rainbow colour.

A very Andy Warhol drag homage.

In the interview, Marc Jacobs says; “Warhol is Warhol. He’s practically a god. I thought, ‘I’m going to get a lot of hell for this.”
