Twinkle by Wenlan is stocked in stores like Anthropologie, Dear Fieldbinder in Brooklyn, and Kitson in Los Angeles, and it has a regular Fashion Week runway show, but up until now, it's never had a brick-and-mortar store. That changes this week, albeit briefly, when Twinkle launches a pop-up for three days inside East Village resale shop Cadillac's Castle at 333 E.9th Street. The shop kicks off this Thursday, December 10 at noon, stays open until 6pm, and then remains opens Friday and Saturday from noon to 8pm.
However! Thursday night from 7pm to 9pm there's a private party to mark the store opening. Everything in-store, from the home line to Twinkle's re-issued classics from the past decade, will be 20% off, and we're told some the list of invited guests includes some celebrities.
If you'd like the chance to go to said party, keep an eye on Racked over the next day or so. We'll be tossing out trivia questions on the site, on Twitter, and in our newsletter. For each one, the first person to email us with the correct answer wins a pair of tickets to the event.
To start things off: Who was the first designer to collaborate with H&M in the United States? Send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: And we have a winner! Watch for a second trivia question in today's newsletter.
