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.
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.
The director Gus Van Sant is one of those creators synonymous with the youth culture of the 90s, when the fringes hit the mainstream. The Drugstore Cowboy (ok, it came out in ‘89, but you know what I mean) and especially My Own Private Idaho (’91) made him more than an instant cult figure. And if his later releases like Gerry, Last Days, and Paranoid Park, did not seem as impactful, perhaps it’s because the youth culture that changed and not the man.

Last week we again visited the studio of the artist Barry X Ball, whose engrossing, unsettling sculptures are at the top of our art list. See our photo essay below and read our extensive profile on the artist.
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.)
