Once When I Was Wednesdays : Orchard Street, LES Edition
Once when I was living on Rivington Street in the LES in the 90’s there was a burgeoning scene in fashion brewing around the corner on Orchard Street. I basically spent my nights on Ludlow Street watching friend’s bands (ehem, Yeah,Yeah,Yeahs and Interpol) play at Luna Lounge and boozing it up at Max Fish & Motor City until the gates went down. But during the daytime I would spend a fair amount of time working, I mean shopping, I mean prepping for a shoot in the shops on Orchard. There was the avant-gard fashion pack smoking outside at 7even Boutique way before they moved to SOHO. I loved sitting on the bench at alife with all the cute skaters who then grew into full fledged sneaker aficionados. Next door was where the denim-heads sipped espresso at DDCLab. But my favorite spot to ogle the wares was a few doors down at Exhibitionist by Michael Spirito. I would visit with Sloan and Michael and hear all about which major pop or rock star was wearing the diamond encrusted collar or a spiky crystalized crown in the next video. Most of it was super luxury and one of a kind but there was always mini versions of day of the dead skulls and heart earrings.
I was pleased as punch to reconnect with the brand when I ran into Sloan at LA market. The collection is still as edgy and rock-n-roll as ever but with a glamourous vibe. Plus it’s so accessible! You can shop directly online. From top to bottom, L to R. Some styles are for next Spring so if they are not available I linked a similar style.
