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.”

p.45 welcomes pas de calais this spring. known for their luxe jackets and beautifully draped pants, pas de calais is a line inspired by the rich landscape of northen france. the collection is shown in soft, natural shades of grey, chalk white, khaki green, and rich black.
"combining a variety of traditional dyeing and advanced techniques used with cotton, linen and silk, pas de calais develops its own original textiles."
"An essence of purity and nostalgia added to modern casual design,
the pas de calais spirit is a romantic contemporary universe."
this spring, we are excited to add the french line swildens to p.45. the effortlessly cool line by juliette swildens draws inspiration from mixing femine and vintage pieces with a classic touch. the spring collection is no different with its easy dresses in beautiful prints, and cool leather jackets in unexpected hues, and deliacte silk blouses. the pieces in swilden's spring line are simple and stunning and leave you swooning for warmer days.
