The ‘Hipster-ish’ Visual Merchandiser Who Loves Grace Jones


When our Video Look Book crew caught up with Alexis Bittar visual merchandiser Marlena Batts, she was working on a new window display for the Bleecker Street store. The Bushwick resident named Grace Jones and Iris Apfel as big-time style influences, then walked us through her summery getup (the shorts are from her mom, the ring from Brooklyn Flea ... ). Watch the video to see her effortless downtown look.
