Something fabulous just hatched right here in New York City. The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt kicked off yesterday in the Big Apple, with 260 giant eggs — each crafted by globally renowned artists and designers — tucked into various locations throughout 5 boroughs.
From Ralph Lauren’s Western-themed cowboy egg (complete with boots and mustache, of course) to the candy-colored egg inside Parisian macaron store Ladurée, to Warby Parker’s map-themed creation, these eggs have serious style.
But this egg hunt is far from old school; it’s gotten a 21st century makeover. You can participate in the hunt via smartphone with a downloadable app that helps you “crack the code” by revealing egg locations across the city. By “checking in” at each egg, you are entered into a sweepstakes to win one of three stunning jewel-encrusted necklaces (sounds eggcellent, now doesn’t it?).
The eggs will be on display until April 1-17 across the 5 boroughs, then will all be moved to Rockefeller Center in a finale exhibition from April18-25. The art display will culminate with a live auction of the eggs, with proceeds going to charity.
