Rachel Comey Opens First Store

p.45 congratulates its designer Rachel Comey on the opening of the label’s first retail location in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. Formerly a rug shop, the newly-renovated space boasts a mix of inspired design elements that all work together to compliment the pieces of Rachel Comey’s collections. The ceiling’s natural wood rafters and expansive skylights, a table crafted from stones found along Comey’s favorite Long Island beach, and, of course, the blend of masculine and feminine influences that have been a trademark of her brand—imagine concrete floors, luxe velvet curtains and plush leather couches (specially designed by Comey)—offer a heightened sense of refinement to the space.

Last week, Comey hosted a private event at her new boutique to celebrate the momentous occasion. Amongst the crowd, p.45’s own Tricia Tunstall was in attendance, “I love the space…a beautiful store that fits the aesthetic of this well-respected designer.”

creatures of comfort spring 2014

creatures of comfort's spring line is an easy, breezy collection full of beautiful pieces in light-weight and airy fabrics.  Designer Jade Lai plays with cool and unexcpected cuts and interesting, yet fun, prints.  Lai leans toward a more neutral color palette with pieces in crisp white and chambray, but also pops of ochre and ocean blue. the collection has everything from the perfect linen shift dress to the easiest high-waisted shorts in a muted floral print, to the pom pom crop top in crisp cotton. the spring line is a nice twist on the warm weather classics.
