Takahiro Miyashita of the Japanese menswear brand TheSoloist has always had affinity for New York. The only outpost for his first label, Number (N)ine, outside of Japan was here in TriBeCa. Much of it has to do with Al Albayan, who has been Miyashita’s right hand since the early N(N) days. Together, they have cooked up something for New York once again. RE:AL is TheSoloist is a pop-up shop, again in TriBeCa that opened last weekend and will run through July. The idea was to open a version of an airport gift shop. Miyashita is fond of traveling and not fond of diffusion lines, so doing something quite different but still familiar seemed like a fitting idea.
Visvim and its womenswear label, WMV, has opened a pop-up shop at at Williamson’s new retail space 180, located in Tribeca at 180 Duane Street.
We again teamed with Atelier New York to open the StyleZeitgeist pop-up, as people have been inquiring about the products they missed the first time around. We will be ready by 5 p.m. this afternoon and the shop will be open for ten days through December 18th. While we have sold out of some styles and we now offer the rest of the products online, there is nothing like experiencing these products in person. We will also have back issues of the magazine and the limited edition poster.
