SHOP JOURNEY: A.F. Vandevorst, by An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx, is coming to a store near you—quite literally. The Belgian label is bringing its wandering store concept “TSTSITW” — or, The Smallest Traveling Store in the World — Stateside, starting with New York. Tonight, the shop-in-shop will be unveiled at the Patron of the New boutique in TriBeCa. The installation, which will be up through Feb. 23, will give shoppers a glimpse into aesthetic themes preferred by the design duo — mimicking a hospital room with a bed, a screen with a mirror, a closet, a dentist’s lamp and a rack of clothes from the designers. Arickx will be there tonight to celebrate the occasion. The store made its debut last September at London’s Dover Street Market and has since been traveling. The next destination will be Montreal’s Quai 417 late next month.
