Everlane, the socially-conscious e-commerce site without a permanent brick-and-mortar presence, is using another "open studio" to introduce its new Modern and Street ankle boots this Saturday, February 6th at 93 Grand Street.
The San Francisco-brand that cuts the middleman out of manufacturing with its "radical transparency" is offering shoppers the chance to not only buy the boots, but also try on its Street Fleece and Waffle Knit collections. There will also be snacks courtesy of Blue Bottle Coffee for you to nosh on as you decide on what you're taking home.
The last time Everlane popped up with an "open studio," it brought basics beyond footwear, exhibiting how everyday goods in your home are made and how much they actually cost ( in addition to showcasing the men and women's clothing collection) — and we're sure you can expect a bit of the same educational approach to shopping this time around.
The studio will be open from 12pm to 4pm. RSVP here.
