Lisa Perry, who has never met a bright color she didn't like, opened a pop-up shop today in the former home of Hogan on Spring between Wooster and Greene. Perry's been selling her signature color-blocked mod dresses out of a combined retail space and office on West Broadway, but the old location was up a flight of stairs. As she told WWD, it was just time to be street-level.
The new store bursts with color—partly from the dresses and handbags on display, but also from Perry's home line, which is not exactly dour either. Her pillows and bedding are so dazzling that they might actually keep people up at night, and her coasters, placemats, and notebooks are equally cheery. In addition to Perry's own designs, the store also carries books, DVDs, jewelry, and other items that have inspired her. It will remain in the space through August, and possibly longer if things go well.
