Paul Smith is opening of new store and gallery space in New York at Wooster Street in SoHo, and a series of exhibitions planned with local New York artists.
The store, which spans nearly 5,000 square feet, will feature men’s and women’s wear and also features a circus mirror, a reproduction of an original piece from Smith’s personal collection.
Other interior details are conceived to resemble an artist’s studio, such as display racks on caster wheels and photographic light boxes placed here and there. Paintbrushes cast in bronze double as doorhandles. A neon sign in the window of the 88 Wooster Street building emits Smith’s positive vibes, reading: “You can find inspiration in everything, and if you can’t, look again.”
Susan Penzner and Nathan Stange of Susan Penzner Real Estate represented Paul Smith in the lease.
