To me, the Manhattan equivalent of Liberty of London is the unromantically named ABC Carpet and Home, except, of course, that those exceedingly glorious ten floors of fantasy don’t sell clothes, or shoes.
Well, until now.
The NYT announced today that Gary Graham will open an in-store boutique on Monday, in the former Chandelier Room.
There are a couple of Gary Grahams to be googled, and rest assured that this GG helped design products at ABC before starting his line. His clothes, as befit ABC, are eccentric and have a cool cachet—J. T. Leroy wore one of his jackets.
I particularly love the display—with the jointed mannequins who sport animal heads. Do visit and let me know what you think of the boutique!
