Thursday night Atelier celebrated it's official relocation from it's old location on Crosby Street in Soho to it's new location at 304 Hudson Street.   

If you haven't had a chance to visit Atelier in New York City, add it to your list of stores to visit right now!   Atelier offers the most prestigious variety of Avant-garde designers I've ever seen from a boutique: from Eurpean based labels like Austrian designer Carol Christian Poell to Ann Demeulemeester of the Antwerp Asian based labels like Yoji Yamamoto and Julius.  

Besides chatting with Roger and Mauricio from MAO PR, I had the opportunity to chat with my all time favorite designer Alexander Plokhov, the designer for the label that was Cloak.  Funny how when I met Mr. Plokhov, I just so happend to be wearing my Cloak military inspired black oxford with a double asymmetrical button line flowing from the shoulder down diagonally across the chest.  

Great night overall.

    I love these photos, Craig!

  15. enc--Thanks! I wonder if anyone noticed that one of those pictures was actually taken with the people looking into a mirror? And that you can see my camera taking the shot too?

    Glad you liked the pictures as they were taken without a flash...

  16. Max says:

    altamira - I was there with a friend taking photos as well, once he has them edited/fixed up, I'll definitely throw them up here.

  17. the shot of the comme des garçons is it shot into a mirror?
    with you peeking through between them?

    great shot.
