Up for the brief period of Fashion Week, this is Slow and Steady Wins the Race's LES temporary boutique at 118 Orchard Street at Delancey Street (Sol Moscot's street-level storefront). We caught the clothing label's owners as they were putting out Tiger Beer and shrimp cocktail platters on Saturday for the place's opening party. The concept of the company, according to the press materials, is "a quarterly clothing diary, cataloguing ideas that are focused on a specific and fundamental characteristic of clothing design." We'll let you decode the meaning of that statement for yourself. While you do so, have a look at some of the wares they are peddling (a note: you can't walk in and buy something, but they are taking orders). If you'd like to drop by, the store/exhibition will be up until Thursday September 13th. For more on Slow and Steady, click over to Refinery29.
Wait, that's not real Gucci.
