The number of summer-themed pop ups and shop-in-shops is growing by the week—if only the weather would necessitate them. In case you missed it, Club Monaco opened a Beach Shop in the West Village, Odin and Pas de Deux launched their Summer Shop bungalow in the East Village, and Nolita's Raleigh is hosting a swim pop up with L*Space and Onia. The latest swim/beach/summer-themed shop to hit the city is at Henri Bendel.
At the aptly titled Beach Bar, you can pick up an oversized straw tote and just about everything you might need to stuff into it for a day by the water: floppy sun hats, bright sunglasses, swimwear, flip flops, and more summer essentials fill the shop-in-shop. Next week is the store's birthday and they're celebrating with discounts, in store giveaways, and a free $25 gift card for every $100 spent. Full details on the bash are here.
