After "throwing money at wholesale," menswear and womenswear designer Miguel Antoinne has opened his first stand-alone store: a two-level boutique at 39 Wooster Street in Soho. Antoinne explained that as he began to close out some of his underperforming wholesale accounts, customers urged him to open a space of his own. "I knew it was a great opportunity for us to showcase everything we do as a brand," he said.
The decor is minimal, with black racks of clothing lining the walls. Antoinne may have chosen to keep things simple with the interior design, but the same isn't necessarily true for the merchandise. His collections include plenty of leather, as well as items like a silk dress in a hand-painted floral fabric. He also offers clients custom pieces, and says, "For me, every piece should be special. Every item has it's moment." Click through the gallery above to see just a few of them.
