After converting their store format earlier this year, Eva New York has just announced that it will be completely closing down its regular store. "Starting December 1st, Eva as you know it will no longer exist. We will only be open for pop ups and events," store owner Stephanie Pappas said in an email. That means customers have just over a month to shop designers like Don't Shoot the Messenger, Chromat, and House of Exposure at the Bowery location.
The team behind the store believes that this new format, which they are calling the Open Gallery Space, is an expansion of their mission to promote new and exciting brands. Pappas began experimenting with renting out her space for designer pop ups and other events earlier this year, with included two sample sales for the footwear brand Marais. No word yet on what the first will be after the conversion.—Laura Gurfein
