The leaves are changing colors, the days are getting shorter, the farmers' market is full of decorative gourds—it must be pop-up shop season! Right now, the wildly diverse list of this fall's temporary stores includes Soho's incoming Under Armour and the Flatiron's brand-new Harry & David, but the latest addition is a lot less national and a lot more arty: Project No. 8, that gleaming white cube of a Lower East Side boutique, is popping up at 186 Duane Street in Tribeca.
This will be the fourth New York location for the store, which also has a neighborhood sibling called No.8b and an Ace Hotel gift shop. Right now, there's not much information available online, but if it's anything like the other stores, it'll carry a mix of high-concept (and high-price) clothing from European designers like Maison Martin Margiela and Boudicca and small, weirdly fascinating knick-knacks like a $40 pigeon made of alpaca wool. Doors open this Thursday, October 28.
