Yesterday night I stopped by Bloomingdales Soho for their launch of a new Ecolux Pop-Up Shop done in collaboration with The Green Shows. The shop features some of my favorite local talents, including three designers who we will be throwing parties for shortly (i.e. tomorrow and in the next two weeks!): Study NY, H. Fredriksson, and Suzanne Rae. The pop-up was planned in honor of Earth Day, which is this Friday, April 22nd, and will go from today until Saturday. I might be a little biased since I know and adore plenty of the designers involved, but I truly believe that the space offers the best selection of environmentally conscious design on the market right now. I'm particularly feeling the Ikat print full skirt from Study NY, the bat-winged chambray shirt from Suzanne Rae, and the printed shorts from Samantha Pleet, which are covered in illustrations of tiny animals, and look like a Hieronymus Bosch painting converted to print! Throughout the next few days they will be having plenty of fun events and meet-and-greets with all the designers involved, and if you are in New York, you should definitely stop by for a chat, some tea, and cupcakes. Check here for a full schedule of all the events.
I'm obsessed with these printed shorts by Samantha Pleet. There are dozens of tiny animals hidden in the print!
