Cynthia Vincent might be based in LA, but she's about to start spending a lot more time in our city. On March 25, the boho designer will open her first freestanding NY store in Nolita. Vincent will be camping at 253 Elizabeth Street, which up until recently housed Hayden-Harnett. The 900-square-foot space will house the Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent range and her shoes and handbags, as well as limited edition one-of-a-kind pieces. Beyond that, Vincent has reached out to some of her favorite jewelry designers and will also stock some of their items, naturally hand-selected by her.
The shop's aesthetic will combine high Hollywood regency undertones with 1970's bohemian flair. The crushed seashell wallpaper sounds like a nice touch, but the standout design element will almost definitely be Vincent's collection of taxidermy, which she plans to showcase in-store.
