GOING FOR THE GOLD: Designers are going to be popping up at retail all over New York during fashion week.
On Wednesday, Gilded Age will unveil present its fall collection inside its first retail store. The 950-square-foot unit will be located at 224 Front Street at the South Street Seaport, one of the only designer brands to open in that area. The store will open to the public starting on Thursday.
On Tuesday, Shipley & Halmos will debut a pop-up concept shop at 385 Canal Street that will offer pieces from the company’s numerous divisions, including apparel, handmade objects and printed materials. The front of the shop will display T-shirts, postcards, shot glasses, key chains and coffee mugs, while the back of the shop will offer looks from the Shipley & Halmos collection. It will include a number of limited-edition collaboration items as well, such as a Billykirk x Shipley & Halmos iPhone/wallet case and some hand-painted Vans shoes. The shop, which will feature natural wood pegboard shelving and custom powder-coated metal racks, will remain open through Feb. 23.
