NICHOLAS ANDERSEN and Julie Ho of Confetti System are art school graduates with a penchant for parties. And their piñatas — dazzling jewel-shape sculptures, created by hand in their Brooklyn studio — have made for some particularly exuberant ones, including Karen O’s last birthday and United Bamboo’s fall runway show.
Now, in celebration of Cinco de Mayo, the pair has created a window installation for Opening Ceremony, on view all of May; and this week, their new line of multicolor piñatas and matching silk-and-leather blindfolds hits Bergdorf Goodman’s seventh-floor chocolate shop.
But, really, who would want to smash such spectacular creations? “There are those who buy them just for decoration,” said Ms. Ho, who is also at work on a line of silk slumber-party wear. “But the best part is breaking them open, and that beautiful storm of color comes out.”
Confetti System piñatas, $98 to $145, and blindfolds, $32 to $105, available at Bergdorf Goodman and confettisystem.com
