All my kudos goes out to Virgil Abloh....yup the guy in the sleek black tux and velvet slippers chilling in the background behind Bill Cunningham and that Swiffer, Snuff, Swift girl. Goes to show you it's not necessarily all about what you wear, part of it is how things fit and feeling the confidence that this man has!
Made another cover this month! RD JR in Belstaff gracing the April cover of GQ! If you are interested in the piece, shoot us an email!
If you haven't been in the new store in the last month you would not have seen our big Spring roll-out of books from Assouline and Rizzoli. We are always conscious of our clients needs, and their lifestyle, which leads to our new small home goods and furniture sections of the store. We agree with Hollister Hovey's perspective on creating a lifestyle in your home that is a true reflection of who you are and where you come from. "Truly modern thinking takes past into consideration". To learn more you need to check out this book!
As we are ever-expanding our home collection we want to keep all of you followers out there updated on new goods always arriving. One of our newest home accessories line is P & A by a husband and wife team from Pennsylvania, whose all natural lifestyle really captivated our home buyers at the gift show this past January. Not only do we love this amazing Trencher Plate, but also Charcuterie Boards, Ipad stands, and small chalkboards! I'm thinking about getting my shopping done for wedding season this summer!
The whole staff climbed up on the roof of our three story store today to prove how dedicated we are to celebrating Spring Break, and the warmth weather inside the shop! If you are still in Grand Rapids this week, make sure you stop in for a little sunshine, some warm weather clothes and ACCESSORIES (big delivery this week of Missoni, Rebecca Minkoff, new books from Rizzoli!!!), and maybe a summer cocktail or two! We wish you were here!
We're not sure where you do most of your shopping (we would hope that it would be here locally), but we are pretty proud of our Spring rag&bone presentation! Outside of the 4 actual RB stores we have visited, this presentation cannot be beaten! The aesthetic that we work hard to bring you is exactly what you would experience from visiting one of their retail locations, and you get to hang out with our awesome staff, enjoy a complimentary beverage, and maybe visit one of the other amazing mini-shops in our beautiful store! Can't wait to see you for Spring!
In case you missed him this past fall at our Grand Opening celebrations, contemporary artist Nick Cave is currently holding an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. It is awesome to see what NC is doing to the performance art scene, can't wait to see where he goes next!
Whenever we have a trunk show weekend, we always welcome the curious, and questioning client who is wondering what all the mailers, emails and facebook posts are all about. We always get one major question during our Zegna trunk show, and that is: "What's so special about the wool, what makes it different?" Well here is your answer sir: This April is the 50th annual celebration of the Golden Fleece Award, which is a milestone that Ermenegildo Zegna offers all wool growers around the world, which they in turn use to find the best wool. To celebrate this year Zegna is getting ready for 3 days of festivities from April 21-23 which will include press dinners, farm visits and a multimedia production at the Royal Hall of industries in Sydney. Wool growers from Mongolia, Italy, the UK, and Australia will attend to compete for the prize, which usually is awarded to the Australian growers who have perfected superfine merino into strands that are 18.5 microns thin or finer.
