Byronesque unleashes an avant-garde extravaganza at New York’s #FashionPorn Pop-Up
OMG — Over 300 pieces of prized Margiela, Balenciaga, Helmut Lang and Raf Simons will be available starting tomorrow! Fuck yeah!
Starting tomorrow, the most venerable, inimitable brands — all vintage pieces brought to you from Byronesque (Gill Linton’s portal to the coolest fashion collectables in the land) — will be on offer at “Oporning Ceremony” at #35 Howard Street (and Crosby) in Soho, NYC. Vintage vultures will be able to bid on hundreds of styles and oodles of brands, including Balenciaga, Helmut Lang, Raf Simons and one of VIVISXN’S faves, Vexed Generation, a 90s cult label from avant-gardians Adam Thorpe and Joe Hunter. You’ll be able to get your hands on first samples from Nicolas Ghesquière, Peter Saville + Raf Simons’ (New Order pieces), and Margiela’s L’Incognito sunglasses.
OC will also curate a space dedicated solely to early Martin Margiela, with mad cool merchandise from the 90s/00s Couture Shows. Special items include: semi Couture apron (SS1997); semi Couture vest with shoulder pads (SS1997); duvet coat (AW1999-00); and glove top (SS2001). The prices will be set at a stratospheric premium, of course, so pop by the ATM machine on your way and bring as much cabbage as you can.
“This is perhaps the best collection we’ve ever had,” says Gill Linton, head honcho of Byronesque. “The 90s was the last time fashion was at its most creative and, while that’s starting to change, we still think it’s essential to uphold the creative defiance of these important vintage designers and the culture they created.” Get some!
Byronesque’s #FashionPorn pop-up runs from July 8-23 at Opening Ceremony in New York
