As part of StyleZeitgeist’s 10th anniversary celebration I decided to open a pop-up shop in New York City. So much of what we do is digital that I thought it’s time we should do something in 3D. The pop-up shop will take place at the new Atelier New York location in Greenwich village and will open this Saturday at noon. I will try to be on site for most of the time, so feel free to stop in and say hi.
As part of the StyleZeitgeist 10th Anniversary pop-up shop and in conjunction with Atelier New York, we are helping launch the personalized footwear program by A19123. For the first time ever customers will be able to order three classic A1923 styles in fabrication and color they desire.
On September 13th, from 6-8 p.m. the A1923 designer Simone Cecchetto will be on site in order to guide customers through the available choices. If you miss the launch, you will still be able to order a custom pair of A1923 footwear at Atelier, exclusively in New York City. A1923 will subsequently roll out the program in select boutiques worldwide.
As part of the StyleZeitgeist 10th Anniversary pop-up shop, we collaborated on the 2-piece capsule collection with the Australian label Song For the Mute, whose work we have championed since the label’s inception. The collaboration combines the signature structure of Song for the Mute garments with a custom fabric developed exclusively for this collaboration. The handmade Japanese fabric execution of the Raised Neck Coat is a homage to the Peter Saville’s iconic ‘Unknown Pleasures’ album artwork for the post-punk band Joy Division.
This past weekend Rick Owens reopened his New York boutique on the corner of Crosby and Howard streets in Manhattan. This particular stretch of SoHo has exploded this year with the opening of the 11 Howard hotel and the adjacent interior design shop Oliver Gustav (which coincidentally carries furniture by Rick Owens). The former textile factory building was previously occupied by a Jil Sander store, and has undergone extensive renovations to reflect Owens’s universe.
After being cooped up in a tenth floor gallery space in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, Atelier New York, the iconic shop that has been instrumental in promoting the way we dress now, has finally moved to a storefront location in Greenwich Village. It quietly opened its doors this past weekend at its new address, 20 West 8th St. The new interior has retained some of Atelier’s original fixtures, such as the long marble table and the fur-lined dressing rooms.

It is hard to believe that that the perennially young Japanese label UNDERCOVER turned 25 last year. As part of the anniversary, the publisher Rizzoli is releasing a 256-page book on the brand ($65). It is the first comprehensive overview of UNDERCOVER’s body of work and the first book on the brand available in the West (if you can find it, hunt down the fantastic “The Shepherd,” which documented UNDERCOVER’s first Parisian shows.)
