Greg Armas has been selling androgynous, understated clothing for three years now as the owner of Assembly New York, but this is the first time he's stepped into the world of design. Tuesday night, he showed off his debut womenswear collection inside his Lower East Side store.
Many of Assembly's key brands pitched in: Aesa provided accessories, Arielle De Pinto did bun boxes, Anve made some of the leather bags, and Rawumber of Japan and Federica Felt Hat were in charge of hats. Armas says he's inspired by 1930s Paris, and he's clearly also having fun with proportion and gender-bending. Us, we're just charmed by the way the few bold accessories stand out against all those neutrals. Can we talk about that patchwork bag?
