“No detail of this interior has been overlooked. Everything from the neon tubes that illuminate the building’s original metal pipes along the ceiling to the structure of the shelves and the storage units (old air stewardess trolleys) have been honed to reflect the brand’s unique image.
There was a real emphasis on preserving the building’s original heritage as an Art Deco landmark while creating a vibrant show space for the product. You know those places that are just fun to shop in, even without champagne?”
Ernest Alexander opened their first flagship store in NYC on June 8th—the prime location? SoHo, obviously! The store features the entire Ernest Alexander collection in one location for super convenient shopping, including tailored jackets and shirts, selvedge denim, and their popular range of bags and accessories (all made in t he USA). “With touches of their signature grays and red, original wood flooring, tin ceilings, and Ernest’s own collection of antique knick-knacks strewn about, the store aims to emulate a well-worn masculine living room,” says the brand.

One day before the new Superdry store opened in Times Square (with plenty of fanfare, AKA free leather jackets), we stopped in to check out the spring collection and have a few vanilla macaroons. The British brand’s oversize kanji character motifs were sold alongside skinny jeans in colors like peachy and near-neon mint green. The jeans were vintage bleached and over-dyed, ready for pairing with summer tops and beach sandals. Stop by and grab a pair for a no-fuss punch of color and excitement in your wardrobe.
Shop Superdry at 49th Street and 7th Ave.
