In just a few short days, Odin has demonstrated how to really pull off the whole high/low thing. First, there was the announcement of a collaboration with The Shops at Target, which will bring the store's downtown wares to the masses this September. Today, in an entirely different move, WWD reports that shopowners Eddy Chai and Paul Birardi will also be bringing a Todd Snyder pop-up shop to the Lafayette store next week.
The Todd Snyder Tailor Shop at Odin, which is expected to run through June, will highlight the brand's suits and furnishings that are made by the manufacturer who owns Brooks Brothers—so, they're legit. Snyder himself explains that the pop-up will be "a great way to highlight the lost art" of American suiting, and that the whole thing happened pretty quick. "They came in to look at resort and we starting kicking around some ideas. We decided on this and it happened in a week." We imagine the Target deal was probably a little more complicated than that.
