Luxury lifestyle brand Quinn opens its first New York City location on the Lower East Side’s trendy Orchard Street. Joining neighbors like Reed Space, The Hoodie Shop, and Epaulet, Quinn brings a unique approach to casual luxury to an area known for its counter-culture fashion. Housing both knitwear brand Qi New York and contemporary collection Ainsley, the melding of the two brands results in a fusion of sumptuous cashmere sweaters in funky asymmetrical cuts and boho printed separates in diaphanous fabrics.
The 1,000 square foot space boasts reclaimed materials such as a gilded mirror from the original Flat Iron building and a massive birdcage chandelier that sets the lofty mood for the space. Home goods line Qi Home rounds out the offerings with the same quality cashmere found in their sweaters repurposed for cozy blankets and travel goods. Paper Denim and Cloth jeans, locally manufactured footwear, and natural soaps add to the total lifestyle experience. —Sidney Morgan-Petro
Now open at 181 Orchard St. New York, NY 10002
