As you guys know, we’ve been super excited for Moussy’s stateside launch, and dropped by the opening party at the epic Meatpacking District pop-up shop (which will exist only until Black Friday for shopping, after which permanent location discussions will ensue) to check out the line and celebrate in October. The shop looks more like a club than a retail location, but when you moved aside the hors d’oeuvres (we lost count of how many cranberry sauce meatballs we scarfed down after 25), the DJ, the live band, and the party-goers, it was all about the clothes. A pure rock’n'roll badass aesthetic, featuring tailored blazers, biker jackets, acid wash denim, and faux-fur.

And FYI, Moussy is also running a MOUSSYGIRL Snapshot contest through November 21st which awards $100 to shop the store to girls who bring the best Moussy style to the camera (you can get your snapshot taken at the store to enter, and then have friends “like” your photo with wild abandon to increase your chances of winning). The first two winners are below!
Stay tuned! In a few days we’re going to take you inside the Moussy NY shop and walk you through the collection so you can see what all the buzz is about, up close.

BLK DNM has a wall full of ads posted up on a construction site in Tribeca, informing passers-by of a pop-up shop open now at 237 Lafayette (between Prince & Spring streets). The contrast white & red ad lists artists and designers featured in the BLK DNM gazette—names like Waris Ahluwalia and Terence Koh—available at the pop-up shop. The brand recently threw a chic downtown soiree to celebrate the release of the gazette. You can see some photos of the retail space at the BLK DNM website, and check out a preview of the gazette here.

What do you get when you mix old school with an outlook of what’s old is now new? Artisan De Luxe best known its unique craftmanship whereas each piece of denim is individually “imperfect” has opened its very first pop-up shop in Studio City’s iconic Sy Devore retail store. The store, which has been around for over 65 years, started in Hollywood and served as the go-to men’s store since the fifty’s. Owner, Danny Marsh, says “Sy Devore started as the original Ratpack store and has been pushing the envelope ever since with ground-breaking styles for men.” He is very excited for Artisan de Luxe to take position in the store and thinks Artisan de Luxe’s designer, Philippe Naouri, is “one of the most talented designers out there, and has a unique perspective on denim sportswear.” We think old blue eyes would be very intrigued to be wearing some blues, Sammy Davis Jr. too!
