Where the runway meets the street

Celebrating Byronesque‘s one-year anniversary, the online vintage fashion retailer bring their clothes offline, showcasing them in a pop-up exhibition hosted by Michèle Lamy (wife of Rick Owens), Mazdack Rassi, and Glenn O’Brien. Authentic vintage items from the likes of John Galliano, Comme des Garçons, Jean Paul Gaultier, Maison Martin Margiela, Issey Miyake, and Vivienne Westwood fill the abandoned wing of a post office that serves as the gallery (which was also Yohji Yamamoto‘s venue for his Spring/Summer 2014 Y-3 fashion show). Typographer and graphic designer Craig Ward lend his hand for a floor-to-ceiling collage, dramatically setting the background for the exhibit that employed Broadway set designers to install. With multimedia artwork, decked changing rooms and an accompanying boutique from which visitors can actually shop the vintage clothes, this exhibition is well worth a stop-by if you are in the city.

Visit the space open to the public today until December 15. The clothes will be available for sale online shortly after.
