One of my favorite shopping experiences in the city is seasonal pop-up shop Clothes Encounters, which happens three times a year. Put on by Joanne Levy and Melanie Fogel, the chic, three-day affair takes place inside Joanne’s mod home on Abbott Avenue. And you’re invited. Here’s the rundown I gave last year:
It operates for only three days at a time and delivers a bespoke experience that allows shoppers to browse full collections from hard-to-find brands, choose their favorite pieces, and order them in different colors. (Trunk show style.) Five years and thriving (long before pop-ups were trendy), Clothes Encounters sticks to a modernist aesthetic so expect structured garments in solid colors, drapey details, scultupural accessories in earthy colors, and a splash of local talent.
Still true. Happening next week, Wednesday, February 20, through Friday, February 22, from 10 am to 5 pm at 4444 Abbott Avenue.
I think I need to scope out this hoodie dress (see above).
