Last night, in the sweltering heat, I risked my sanity and who knows what else to document Leandra Medine, aka The Man Repeller, in her natural habitat. Of course, her natural habitat would be a boutique in downtown Manhattan. Camera in-hand, I observed as she stripped the mannequins of Maje down, dressed them in the Man-Repelling style she knows so well and transformed the store windows into her ideal summer barbecue. What’s in Leandra’s ideal barbecue? Flamingos, a grill, AstroTurf and rather unsurprisingly (in her case) metallic wigs.
Watch the video below to get our exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the process. And swing by the store at 145 Spring Street to see for yourself.
