Lady Gaga and Barneys New York Collaborate on Gaga's Workshop for Holiday 2011

>> Let the countdown begin. Twelve days from now, Barneys New York will unveil Gaga's Workshop: a holiday shopping extravaganza an entire year in the making. The project — a collaboration between Lady Gaga, Nicola Formichetti, Barneys creative director Dennis Freedman, and installation artists Eli Subrack and Christophe Hamaide Pierson — opens Nov. 21, taking over the entire fifth floor of the Barneys Madison Avenue flagship. Eight elaborate shopping stations — a jewelry shop made of a Lady Gaga-faced spider, a bookstore in the shape of a giant pop-up book, a boudoir styled like a giant wig, for example — will sell over 170 limited-edition Gaga-themed products. Among the goodies? Chocolate Christmas ornaments ($6), Gaga-topped snow globes ($95), glittery handmade chocolate skulls ($68), claw-shaped stockings ($65), and a one-of-kind pair of black shoes ($4,100). Also available will be a selection of Lady Gaga's personal childhood holiday favorites — Roald Dahl books, candy lipsticks, malted milk balls, gum balls — hand-picked with help from an expert: her mother.

Gaga's Workshop officially opens at 11:59 p.m. Nov. 21 and will stay open through Jan. 2. Until then, peek elements from the project here, with more products unveiled each day for presale on Barneys' just-launched Gaga's Workshop website.
