If you live in New York City, you’re closer to snuggling up to Tom Scott this winter than ever. The knitwear designer just opened his first flagship store in the boho-brimming Lower East Side on September 29, 2009. Scott’s off-beat work has grabbed our attention with detailing on knitwear such as polka-dot cut out sweaters, bold hues, and and felt pailletes that make fall fashion just as sweet as a summer dress.
While WWD reported that the location of the new store was unexpected considering his designs are sold in more upscale areas of New York at Barneys and Colette, the environment is perfect for his quirky work. The 800-square-foot store features reclaimed wood tables and is stocked with random objects like balls of yarn and other odds and ends, all which are sold in conjunction with his designs.
To mark the opening of his flagship store, Scott will be putting out a collection called Repeat Performance – a relaunch of 20 favourite archived knitwear styles.
The Tom Scott flagship boutique is now open on 55 Clinton Street, Lower East Side, New York.
