Curated by Vanity Fair Photo EditorJudith Puckett-Rinella, Whisper Editions commissions art in limited editions to exhibit and sell at their store in the South Street Seaport. Hobnob attended the fun opening.
Perfect for: finding the gift for the person who has everything
What a fantastic idea! Whisper Editions teams up with very cool photographers, furniture makers, jewelry designers, artists, apothecaries, and other creatives to bring innovative, collectible goods in limited quantities. Once the run is done, that’s it. This idea is the brainchild of Judith Puckett-Rinella, who was a photo editor at T Magazine and Vanity Fair, and brings her discerning eye to each commission. Sign up at the Whisper Editions’ website to see the covetable weekly offerings or head down to the South Street Seaport and see the latest in person.
