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.

Rick Owens New York Store Opening

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.

StyleZeitgeist Pop-Up in New York

As part of our 10th anniversary celebration we will open a pop-up shop inside the new storefront location of Atelier New York. We will carry exclusive items from many designers we have supported over the years and who have graciously agreed to create exclusive products for the shop. All of the products are either new styles or have been customized in some way. Most come in limited editions of three to five pieces. Some come in editions of ten or eleven. In the coming days we will begin releasing product imagery. I will try my best to be at the pop-up every day, so come and say hi.

Atelier New York Store Opening

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.

Gallery Aesthete Store Opening

On August 18th Gallery Aesthete reopened in Chicago. Moving from an intentionally hidden location in the city’s heart, the boutique is now situated in a storefront location in the Wicker Park neighborhood. The gallery’s brutalist design is a collaboration between interior architect Lukas Machnik and Gallery Aesthete’s owner, Stephen Naparstek. Formerly a menswear store, the newly expanded store now includes a carefully selected womenswear section, featuring designers such as Rick Owens and Shaun Leane.

ARGUROS

The new online jewelry shop Arguros is the brainchild of Karlo Steel, the former co-owner and mastermind behind the iconic New York menswear boutique Atelier, which played a major role in promoting the menswear avant-garde since its inception in 2002.

Op-Ed: HOW GRAILED IS KILLING THE MENSWEAR AVANT-GARDE

Buying and selling designer clothing by collectors and fashion enthusiasts on the Internet is a longstanding practice. Fashion forums like Supefuture, Styleforum, and StyleZeitgeist, where these enthusiasts tend to congregate are invaluable assets for hunting down that long-coveted piece, called “the holy grail” in the forum parlance. The forums, however, are, first and foremost, places…

THE NEW DOVER STREET MARKET: MAINSTREAMING THE AVANT-GARDE

London, United Kingdom – There are now three Dover Street Markets in the world (plus I.T Beijing Market, run by the same company), and none of them located in Dover Street. Following a 200% rent hike in its eponymous location, London’s most forward-thinking mini-department store has moved to Haymarket. The new outlet officially opened last week and is 3 times bigger than the original.

SHOP:CASE – SVMOSCOW

When SVMOSCOW came on our radar we were pleasantly surprised that a forward-looking store like this could exist in Moscow. Hidden away in a loft-like setting without a shop window in the middle of Russia’s capital, with sparse interior in earthy tones, the boutique breaks all the stereotypes of a gaudy, in-your-face “Russian style” that Westerners are accustomed to. SVMOSCOW carries a cutting-edge mix of brands like Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, and Yohji Yamamoto, among others. It was the first shop in Russia to buy Haider Ackermann and Vetements, and exclusively carry designers like Leon Emanuel Blanck and Goti.
