Nov 1 – Nov 30 – JUNGWON @ Ellen – New York, NY

Did everyone enjoy the torrential downpour in New York on Monday? No, I didn’t think so.

If you’re looking for a rain jacket for the coming season, intelligent outerwear brand JUNGWON will be popping-up at the lovely boutique Ellen on 123 Ludlow Street until the end of November. The brand features delightful styles that breathe effortlessly through the water and wind which grace the city this time of year. The jacket will house you as comfortably as the space houses the brand, cozily tucked in between the boutiques and restaurants that dot Ludlow Street.

June Sohn, creator of JUNGWON, found Ellen on Storefront. If interested in a holiday pop-up, feel free to send a request on the site.

Whether you’re on your way back from a Pastrami on Rye at Katz’s, or heading west to the delightful alleyways of NoLiTa, this pop-up should definitely be a point in your route.

The JUNGWON @ Ellen Pop-Up:

  • Now until November 30th
  • Monday – Saturday from 11am-7pm
  • Sunday from 12-6.

RUUM’s 1-2 punch into the Manhattan brick-and-mortar scene

Across Manhattan marks another Storefront-powered pop-up. RUUM, the uber-chic children’s clothier brings American Kid’s Wear down from the LES to TriBeCa for its second New York location.

RUUM has publicly announced its excitement for opening their new showroom just last month on Madison Ave (85th St. & Madison Ave). With no intentions of stopping there, RUUM partnered with Storefront, who streamlined the process for RUUM to test a second brick-and-mortar location in a new Manhattan neighborhood (TriBeCa).

The build out of the store is focused on the style of the neighborhood, which effectively allows the company to form new and lasting relationships on a local level. 138 W Broadway, an industrially lit space, sets the store’s vibe in an ever-embracing neighborhood. Outfits hang from peg boards, warm spotlights showcase each perfectly planned outfit, all reminiscent of and tipping a cap to the surrounding galleries that exhibit artwork in a similar fashion. It’s a genius build-out.

The best thing about the RUUM holiday collection is the super stylish tike standing next to you after you leave the store. The great thing is your wallet won’t feel much pain. The worst thing is – the little one might school you in the “who wore it better” contest (pun intended).

Take a trip to TriBeCa this weekend and shop the RUUM Pop-Up @ 138 W Broadway New York, NY 10013

The curated collection of Jennifer Crowe comes to Abbot Kinney

Jennifer Crowe (Taisteal Jewelry) is hosting THE curated showcase of the season at The Experiential Space – Abbot Kinney. The locals here in the epicenter of the Venice shopping scene are in for a major treat this holiday. Dubbed “the coolest block in America,”(GQ Magazine), the Jennifer Crowe collection is sure to join the hype.

While managing a bead-and-jewelry store for four years, Jennifer spent her free-time designing what would become the foundation of the Taisteal brand. Bouncing back-and-forth between her store during the week and a market on the weekends, she built her client base the old-fashioned way; she highlighted her jewelry-making process to customers, inviting them to watch her in-action. Succeeding tremendously at the markets, she easily dove into the best trade shows around the country. Jennifer now sells her jewelry wholesale to stores around the country.

Taisteal means “travel” in Irish, and with each line of jewelry she creates, she intends to engage a culture and lifestyle from a unique part of the world.

When it came to establishing this year’s holiday schedule, Jennifer hoped to return to the face-to-face customer interaction that started it all. The up-and-comer wants to own a boutique one day, and is using the space found through Storefront as a trial run. The event is not just about one brand, though. Taisteal will share space with an array of makers, featuring two other jewelers, a panoramic photographer, a home-goods crafter, among others.

Over the years of buying and selling at different markets throughout the country, Jennifer has built an extensive network of creatives that create unique pieces of art and fashion. In an effort to help other artisans that walk a similar path, Jennifer is sharing the space with an array of her fellow crafters, giving them all the chance to showcase their products to eager Venice locals.

Jennifer’s gallery is part of what makes renting retail short term so special – providing a forum for people and brands alike to connect, and create a greater appreciation for the products we see everyday. Storefront approved.

The event runs from November 29th – December 23rd – 1306 Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, California. Admit it, you need to be there.

Michael Stars Pop up

Malibu-meets-Manhattan at the Michael Stars Meatpacking Pop-up

With a little help from Storefront, Michael Stars brought its effortlessly luxurious basics to New York’s Meatpacking District. Their first New York pop-up store the brand wanted to emphasize a refined mix of leather, denim, cashmere and dresses. The event also marks the debut of the Michael Stars menswear line, so bring the man-friend.

The layout plays tribute to the brand’s easygoing street style staples. That Malibu-meets-Manhattan vibe coupled with the exposed brick walls and a green vertical garden. It’s a beautiful build-out. This was the ideal location for Michael Stars to attract the trendy cosmopolitans of New York, and we’re excited to learn more about the brands overall success in the neighborhood.

The pop-up runs from now until January 2015 @ 32 Gansevoort St. New York, NY 10014

We just love what they’ve done with the place. Having a temporary shop allows brands like Michael Stars to test markets at a micro level and build out a space and product with the locals in mind.

Storefront makes beautiful retail space available for short-term rental. The result: we see brands small, emerging, and large – engage their audience offline, make more sales online and walk away with a new understanding of the customer.

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Storefront Vibes at Treasure Island Music Festival

Over the weekend, thousands hurried over the Bay Bridge and made their way to the Treasure Island Music Festival. Storefront partnered up with Noise Pop to bring the cities best crafters and designers to the festival. Top Shelf Boutique, Stoopid Shades, Griz Coat, San Franpsycho, StudioNicoUpper Playground, Indosole – it seemed like everyone was there. After the vendors secured their spaces, the Storefront team moved on to the next project: The Storefront Booth.

Storefront created an interactive and, occasionally, lucrative booth experience for festival goers of all shapes and sizes. Guests at the booth lined-up for a chance to spin the Storefront Wheel. Some people went for the hard whirl, others chose a soft roll. The lucky ones hit the jackpot, winning cool prizes from numerous Storefront brands.

A huge “Thank Ya!” to Bebeani, FatKid Clothing, Hardhaus, Instapainting, Oh Bar and wolven|threads for donating their handmade items. All who left the Storefront Booth were thrilled to take home a piece of the maker pie.

Patrons of the Storefront Booth were also invited to test their own artistic talents, creating pictures both simple and grand on the Storefront Makers Board. By the end of the festival, hearts, hashtags, and even a picture of Homer Simpson dotted the board, standing tall for all passerby’s to admire.

Till next time #TIMF. We’ll see you soon!

Oct 22 – Oct 29 – New York, NY – WK Interact x KLINIK

With an opening reception on October 21st, street artist WK Interact has partnered with KLINIK to showcase an exhibition, celebrating both the release of his fourth book and the 25 years of his art. Finding their home at The Garage on Little West 12th Street, the artist plans on creating pieces in the very space that will house them.

FX Communication’s Margaret Kim, who booked the space, confirmed “WK Interact is known for large installations and for site-determining his work. So it was extremely crucial for us to find the perfect location.”

Looking high-and-low for a raw, white box space, they perused the Storefront listings, and The Garage deserved a second glance. “We were coming down to the wire, when Anthony from Storefront reached out and offered to help find a location that met all of the artist’s requirements.” After sending a request, seeing the space (with the lovely space-owner), and discussing the particulars, Margaret finalized the invoice on the site.

Complementary insurance was issued, and the pop-up gallery was well underway! It will run officially from October 22nd to October 29th at 22 Little West 12th Street in New York’s Meatpacking District.
