Spotted in the window of Alexis Bittar, the high-end jewelry store on Columbus Avenue between 79th and 80th street: A certain real estate mogul, fashion icon, and the next president of these United States. When he takes office, we will all be wearing suits made of stitched-together hundred-dollar bills.
It turns out Alexis Bittar is doing “comedic commentary”:
“In what he’s proclaiming a “salute to absurdity,” Bittar and his visual team have created a series of larger-than-life papier-mâché models in the likeness of Donald Trump’s head — bouffant hair and all. “I’ve been increasingly disturbed by the popularity of Trump in our country and some of the more insane things he’s said,” Bittar said. “I decided to channel my energy and use our creative talent to have a comedic commentary on his vanity coupled with a dash of Halloween craziness.”
