If you haven't already heard, the lower Soho retail scene has officially blown up, with recent openings by Alexander Wang
and Isabel Marant
making for one bad-ass boutique crawl. Well, get ready for another addition to the hood with the soon to be unveiled agnès b. concept store
, to be located at 50 Howard Street between Mercer Street and Broadway. The shop is branded as a "gallery boutique
," and will feature several rotating art exhibitions throughout the year. Don't worry, we'll have a personal tour from Agnès Troublé herself in our Monday email, but until then the French designer dame was cool enough to share the deets on her latest project, new pieces for her Artist T-Shirt series released to celebrate the space. Troublé called on her close friends and favorite artists for limited-edition, exclusive designs, including offerings from Ryan McGinness, Ryan McGinley, José Parlá, and Harmony Korine, whose work will also be concurrently on display in the gallery. The store opens Saturday, April 2, which right now seems so, so far away.
