Jeff Koons is a Neo-Pop artist who turns ‘the child in us’ (reminiscent of ideas in the Cobra movement) into art and art business, willingly absorbed by the art world. And beyond…

The limited edition Balloon-Dog-on-leather-bag was carried in select stores across the United States, including Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas. The 15th of July 2014 was the opening day of H&M’s newest Fifth Avenue flagship store in Manhattan, New York. This edition was put online at the company’s site hm.com two days later on July 17th, 2014. The Jeff Koons item was sold out in minutes.

At the opening several bags have been signed and dated by Koons.
