Moncler and Palm Angels Launch Second Genius Collection in SoHo

Moncler and Palm Angels celebrated the launch of 8 Moncler Palm Angels, the expanded second collection for Moncler Genius, with a party at the Moncler store on Prince Street in SoHo Thursday.
Designer Francesco Ragazzi traveled from London, where he hosted a party in Camden with rapper Octavian, to New York City to host another soiree that drew guests such as Ronnie Fieg, Vashtie Cola, Nigel Sylvester, Young Paris, model Zahara Davis, and Kerwin Frost on the turntables.
The first 8 Moncler Palm Angels collection launched in October 2018, but the second effort from Ragazzi is a much bigger collection. “The first one was more like merchandise for the Genius project, while this one is like my own collection so it’s much bigger,” Ragazzi told WWD at the launch party.
The co-branded pieces, including down parkas, tracksuits, hoodies, and T-shirts, among other styles, feature graffiti, paint splatter, graphics, bright collage patterns and the phrase “mind control” on some styles. The “Palm Angels” graffiti tag that was seen throughout the store on mirrors, walls, and display windows is part of the collection’s theme of “Art Breaking.”
“I started with the idea of a vandalized art gallery,” said Ragazzi about the collection. “The purity of the

Bestseller Opens Permanent U.S. Showroom in SoHo

Bestseller, the Danish apparel conglomerate behind the Selected Homme, Jack & Jones, Vero Moda and Only brands, has opened its first permanent showroom in the U.S. in SoHo. The company had previously operated a temporary space in Midtown.
The 7,500-square-foot space at 96 Spring Street was designed by architecture firm Loda Design, and features a floor-through, loft-like design that blends the original architecture of the building with a design inspired from the company’s headquarters in Aarhus, Denmark. Each brand is given its own distinct space within the showroom.
Bestseller is a family-owned apparel and accessories company founded by Troels Holch Povlsen in 1975. It produces 20 brands that are sold in some 15,000 retailers in 70 markets and operates 3,000 branded stores across the globe.
The opening of the New York showroom is part of a larger strategy to expand the company’s reach in North America.
According to Brian Edgar, president of Bestseller North America, the new showroom “showcases our brands’ DNA more accurately, which helps elevate our presence in the marketplace. The space is much larger than our previous one allowing us to really show what each Bestseller brand can offer.”

Ganni Prepares to Open First London Store in Soho

NORDIC NOOK: London’s Soho district is getting its own small slice of Scandinavia, with a Danish fashion retailer and Swedish eyewear seller touching town near Golden Square in the spring.
Danish contemporary fashion brand Ganni, which is majority owned by L Catterton, will open a 2,750-square-foot store at 36 Beak Street. Harper Dennis Hobbs advised Ganni on the deal. And Sweden’s Viu Eyewear, which allows customers to take up to four frames home to test them, plans to open at 5-6 Upper James Street. That store will span 850 square feet.
Both sites will be a cinnamon bun’s throw from The Nordic Bakery, the Soho institution that serves up sweet and savory dishes from the region. A concept restaurant called Folly will open nearby over the summer, but that will have a French, rather than a Scandi, angle. Behind the venture are Guillaume Depoix and Thierry Costes of the Parisian hospitality family.
The two shops and the restaurant will move into a site that is still under construction, according to Matt Paulson at Levy Real Estate, which advised the landlord Titan Investments. He added that high-end residences will be built on the upper floors of the site.
London’s Soho is buzzing with real estate activity.

Cremieux to Replace SoHo Unit With Hudson Yards Store

NEW YORK — Count Cremieux as the latest upscale tenant to sign on at Hudson Yards.
The French men’s wear brand, which got its start in Saint-Tropez in 1976, will open an 800-square-foot store at The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards, a key element of the neighborhood that is being built on Manhattan’s far West Side. When completed, Hudson Yards will include more than 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space, more than 100 stores, a collection of restaurants, 4,000 residences, a 750-seat public school, a 200-room Equinox hotel and 14 acres of public open space.
The Cremieux store is expected to open in mid-March and will join anchor Neiman Marcus as well as Dior, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Coach, Kiehl’s, AG Jeans by Adriano Goldschmied and Forty-Five-Ten.
At Hudson Yards, the store will be located near Cartier, Dior, Fendi and other brands with a similar aesthetic, said Stephane Cremieux, chief executive officer of Cremieux and son of founder Daniel Cremieux.
The shop will replace the 700-square-foot, two-level unit at 65 Mercer Street that closed in June. That store had been open for four years but the lease was up for renewal and the landlord would not reduce the rent, Cremieux said.

Old Dominion Goes Old-School at Frye’s SoHo Store

It was a far cry from the stage at MetLife Stadium, but it was also dry.
Three days ago, Old Dominion was opening for Kenny Chesney when strong storms caused a temporary evacuation of the arena in New Jersey. Although fans were eventually allowed to return and the show went on, lead singer Matthew Ramsey said the band still performed in a virtual downpour.
On Tuesday night, the Academy of Country Music’s reigning Vocal Group of the Year played an acoustic set at the Frye flagship in SoHo that was part of the boot company’s Fryedays event, a music program that features intimate live performances from established and emerging artists. Other performers have included the Brothers Osborne, a country duo who are featured in Frye’s Hometown Pride advertising campaign. T.J. and John Osborne played a Fryedays event in Las Vegas in April before the ACM awards.
This was the first Fryedays event in New York City. Other performers have included Langhorne Slim, The Lone Bellow, Shakey Graves and Liz Cooper.
“This is a little different,” Ramsey said backstage after the Frye show, where he and his bandmates sat on stools playing guitars. “But much more dry. As soon as we came out on stage

Karl Lagerfeld to Open First U.S. Store in SoHo Saturday

Karl Lagerfeld is ready to take SoHo by storm.
On Saturday, the Karl Lagerfeld brand will open its first U.S. store at 420 West Broadway in New York, which features a mix of Lagerfeld’s European collection and Karl Lagerfeld Paris, which is a joint venture with G-III Apparel Group.
“The moment seems to be right and the space is great,” Lagerfeld told WWD. He noted that distribution of his signature brand, re-launched in the burgeoning masstige category in 2012, first put down retail roots in Europe and then China. “Our first tests in the U.S. were great.”
Inspired by the designer’s personal home and studio, the 3,230-square-foot store has a sophisticated yet inviting, open feel. Each of the furnishings has an unusual story behind it, from antique mirrors to velvet chairs and luxurious marble finishes to the giant Tokidoki silver cartoon sculpture of Lagerfeld — with a ponytail — holding his famous feline, Choupette. A bespoke carpet has a red border around its edges, similar to the border that the designer draws on all of his sketches. A full-size photograph of Lagerfeld, wearing fingerless gloves and chains, and taking a photo with his camera, greets visitors at the entrance.
One highlight is a library wall inspired by

Hermès Said Opening SoHo Store

It looks like Hermès is headed to SoHo.
The luxury retailer, which already operates four stores in Manhattan, is said to be close to signing a lease at 63 Greene Street between Broome and Spring Streets. The 4,800-square-foot space with 30 feet of frontage facing Greene Street, will not be a full-line store, sources said.
In spring 2019, Hermès also plans to open a three-level, 10,000-square-foot unit at 46-48 Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District. Once the new SoHo and Meatpacking units open, Hermès’ will have six Manhattan stores, an unusual expansion at a time when many other retailers are shuttering stores and downsizing.
Greene Street is considered one of the most sought-after streets in SoHo for luxury retail. Hermès’ neighbors will include Dior, Jimmy Choo, Stella McCartney, Chloé, Etro, Saint Laurent and Brunello Cucinelli.
SoHo along with many other prime retail corridors in Manhattan has seen rents plummet in recent years. The city’s average asking rent in 2017 hit its lowest point in 17 years, while asking rents in SoHo declined by one-third. There have been some hopeful signs in the neighborhood and brokers said deals are getting done, albeit, most retailers are have been averse to signing long leases. Hermès will reportedly lease

MZ Wallace Hosts Event at SoHo Store With Reiki Sessions From Mark Connolly

THE HEALER IS IN: Giving the wellness trend another dimension, guests at MZ Wallace’s SoHo store in Manhattan on Tuesday night were encouraged to realign their energy. While some shoppers milled around, trying on the small Camo Metro totes, Thompson Satchels and other bags from the collection, 40 tried out a little reiki. The event’s resident reiki practioner Mark Connolly was a familiar face to several in the room. “This is my coming out as a healer,” Connolly said.
Four years after exiting Condé Nast Traveler as style director, Connolly has built a loyal following as a reiki practitioner and intuitive counselor. Lucy Wallace Eustice, who started MZ Wallace with Monica Zwirner in 2000, was in the mix. For an added punch Tuesday night, Connolly gave guests a sampling of energy balancing with the ancient art of aromatherapy, such as Victorian Hedgerow. “It reminds me of walking through an enchanted old English country garden after a summer rainfall, and everything smells of damp earth and moss with that sweet, pungent country flower smell. That one is [meant to be] very soothing, calming and uplifting,” he said. Blending different essences and oils, Connolly said he would suddenly get a whiff of Angkor

Mizzen + Main to Open Six-Month Pop-up in SoHo

Men’s wear brand Mizzen + Main is opening a pop-up store on Thursday in SoHo.
The store, at 452 West Broadway, will be open for six months. While the pop-up is open, the company will offer customers a “trade program” where they can bring in a cotton dress shirt that they no longer want in exchange for $ 50 off a Mizzen + Main shirt.
The men’s brand has had four pop-ups before, but those were open for either a few days or a few weeks. The last one in Manhattan — two pop-ups were in Manhattan in 2015 and two in San Francisco in 2016 — was at the Refinery Hotel in November 2015.
According to Kevin Lavelle, chief executive officer and founder of the Dallas-based brand, “This will make us better. To be able to interact with our customers will help us understand what is needed to run retail ourselves, and for our retail partners.”
Lavelle said he doesn’t have any grand plans to open a fleet of Mizzen + Main stores. “I don’t ever really see us owning a massive retail presence. We have a great distribution network,” he said.
The brand, which celebrates its fifth birthday this summer, is in nearly 380

Jeffrey Rudes to Shutter SoHo Flagship

NEW YORK — Jeffrey Rudes will close his 5,800-square-foot store at 57 Greene Street in SoHo today. The boutique, which opened to much fanfare in July 2015, housed the designer’s luxury men’s wear and was his only freestanding store.
The reason for the closure was to focus on the brand’s “more lucrative” online business and selected wholesale accounts, a spokesman said. He added there were no plans at this time to open other freestanding stores. Rudes sells to Ron Herman in Los Angeles.
Based in Los Angeles with a design atelier in Bologna, Italy, Rudes had staged his men’s wear presentations at the SoHo store three times. In January, Rudes showed his men’s wear collection in a private duplex apartment in Paris, but also showed at the store as part of New York Fashion Week: Men’s.
At the fall 2017 presentation in Paris, Rudes, who designs alongside creative director Lorenzo Marchese, told WWD his aim is to nudge the customer gently forward each season and to offer clothes that are “wearable, approachable and consistent.”
The SoHo store was conceived by Rudes in collaboration with Steed Hale, principal of Steed Hale Interior Design & Co. Among the design elements were a renovated red brick and iron-columned

Nike Delays SoHo Store Opening

NEW YORK – Nike has been forced to delay the opening of its  55,000-square-foot store in SoHo here, planned for today, due to permits. This is after a week of promoting the store with press walkthroughs and a party Nov. 9. The company issued this statement:
“We look forward to bringing New Yorkers the best of Nike at our new Soho store. Due to permitting issues, the store will not open to the general public as planned on Friday, November 11th. We will communicate the new opening date as soon as possible. Scheduled product launches and consumer events are postponed until opening.”

A Five-Story Party at Nike SoHo

Was scheduling a store party the day after the presidential election a good idea? It didn’t stop droves of sneaker and sport die-hards from turning out to fill the five-story behemoth of a new Nike store in SoHo Wednesday evening. The place was pretty packed and that’s saying something since it has 55,000 square feet to fill. It was a lot of ground to cover.
“I’ve only seen half of it,” said Tinker Hatfield, one of Nike’s most well-known sneaker designers, hanging out somewhere on the third floor. But he liked what he saw so far. “It’s the best reflection of Nike and our culture that I’ve seen yet,” he said. “The architecture is kind of secondary to the product and the way we want to present our storytelling. It’s quite different from [Niketown] on 57th Street. The architecture is heavy and kind of gets in the way.”
Men’s wear designer John Elliot, who was just in from Los Angeles, was also working his way up the escalators. “I’m walking through right now. I’m on the second-and-a-half floor and it’s sensory overload,” said Elliott, whose design collaboration with LeBron James will be adding to the experience. Elliot’s new LeBron Soldier X sneaker will be exclusive

Nautica to Open Full-Price Store in SoHo

NEW YORK — Nautica is getting back into the full-price retail business in the U.S.
The nautical-skewed brand will open a flagship at 101 Prince Street in SoHo later this week. The 2,000-square-foot store, which is located between the Apple Store and J. Crew, marks the first Nautica store to open in Manhattan in over a decade. The company operates over 200 stores internationally, but only outlet stores in America.
The new store is part of the company’s repositioning strategy that was revealed in February. The plan revolves around the theme of “Reimagine Nautica — Inspired by the Sea, Designed in the City,” and includes a good, better, best pricing approach. The SoHo store will carry the higher-priced, more aspirational product and will include women’s wear as well.
Karen Murray, president of Nautica, said, “It is exciting for our brand and consumers to have a retail location in the city that we have called home for over 30 years.”
The SoHo store will offer a “reimagined nautical environment with references to a modern cityscape,” the company said. This will translate into a sophisticated, boutique-style store with nautical references including natural oak beams intended to be reminiscent of a boat.
The store will also include a “style bar,” which will feature an assortment

I Know This Much: From Soho to Spandau

I Know This Much: From Soho to Spandau


I Know This Much – by Gary Kemp, Spandau Ballet’s prime mover – is simply the freshest, most exciting and best-written memoir to arrive for years. Gary’s story begins in North London, where the Kemp family rented a home with no bathrooms and chickens in the yard. After a couple of failed attempts to kill his brother Martin, his parents gave him a guitar for Christmas. From schoolyard battles between the Bowie Boys and the Prog Rockers to Mrs Kemp’s firm insistence on net curtains, from acting for the Children’s Film Foundation to manning a fruit and veg stall on Saturdays, Gary brilliantly evokes an upbringing full of love, creativity and optimism. As the Thatcher years begin, Gary’s account of the outrageous London club scene centred around the Blitz and Billy’s is just sizzling. Out of this glamorous mayhem of kilt-wearing mascara’d peacocks would emerge Spandau Ballet – the band that would define the era, and hold high the victorious standard of the New Romantics. Gary’s thrilling journey with Spandau Ballet would see them record worldwide hits such as True, Gold and Through the Barricades, play the biggest stadiums in the world, and take to the stage in togas when their luggage gets lost in flight. Stallions, supermodels and dwarves would be hired for video shoots, and through it all, Gary records the wonderful friendships, and the slowly-building tensions that would eventually see five old friends facing each other in court. I Know This Much tells the story of Spandau Ballet, but it’s far more than a book about being in a band. Whether it’s meeting Ronnie Kray before filming The Krays, sketching out the fashions and subcultures of the day, or hanging out with Princess Diana, this book offers a story on every page. And all the more so because it’s all written – brilliantly – by Gary himself.

Siddharth Parasnis at Campton Gallery, SoHo

2015-05-26-1432682658-1218090-ScreenShot20150526at4.22.11PM.png

Siddharth Parasnis

Siddharth Parasnis, whose work is on view at Campton Gallery through May 31, knows how to play geometry against instability. His architectural fantasies are improvised constructions built from planes of color that collide, overlap and coalesce into form.

Parasnis works from his memories of places he has lived and traveled — including India, Guatemala, Costa Rica and the Honduras — but it isn’t quite right to say that his work has a sense of place. It would be more accurate to say that he creates new places that demonstrate his affection for buildings and cultures that haven’t lost their souls. The buildings he admires, and the buildings he paints, all bear traces of eccentricity and individual effort in their construction. In a way, Parasnis manages to say some things about people without including them in his pictures.

Eternity #65, Oil on canvas, 55 x 45 inches

A native of India who currently works in the Bay Area, Parasnis has hybridized a wide range of influences from Indian miniature painting to the works of Richard Diebenkorn and other American abstract painters. He has a dynamic color sense that enlivens his compositions with unexpected juxtapositions and fresh harmonies. Underneath the slight leanings of his structures is an ease with perspective and a firm, athletic command of line.

2015-05-26-1432682856-6185556-53.jpg

Eternity #53, Oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches

Eternity #53, which balances representation and abstraction, features a brilliant blue door that is shaded by a slightly tilted corrugated roof. Surrounded by energetically carpentered planes and stripes that are streaked with underpainting, the door offers entry to an invented world that is both dilapidated and enticing. It seems to suggest a delightful state of deferred maintenance that goes with a slower pace of life and less concern for upkeep.

2015-05-26-1432682998-1155282-hometown33.jpg

Hometown #33, Oil on canvas, 36 x 36 inches

In Hometown #33 a symphony of jagged rooflines, tilting timber and unstable planes is bathed by a pale blue sky. It is a remarkably welcoming picture that makes you want to knock at the front door… if there is one. Inside you would likely find people who are have learned to improvise as the world around them shudders. Like the artist who invented the world that they live in, these imaginary people would likely offer you genuine warmth and conviviality.
