Brian Trunzo is leaving Carson Street.
Trunzo cofounded the New York City store in 2012 with Matt Breen, whom he met at law school. He declined to provide details on his reasons for departing or his plans.
Trunzo is leaving the brand while it’s in growth mode. The former lawyers recently relocated the men’s store to a larger space on Greene Street in SoHo and shifted its brand offering to focus more on progressive designer merchandise. They also had plans to set up shop in either Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., or Chicago in fall 2017.
Additionally, the founders launched a separate men’s wear line, Deveaux, earlier this year. The American-made collection, which will be in stores for fall, has been picked up by Totokaelo, United Arrows and Biotop in Japan, and Spruce, a men’s wear store in Chicago that’s set to open this year.
“Carson Street is, and will always be, a defining body of work for me. But there’s more work to do out there,” said Trunzo.
