Alexander Olch definitely has his hands full these days: in addition to opening an art-house cinema on Ludlow Street, the designer just moved his Orchard Street clothing store a couple doors down. It reopened on the corner of Canal Street yesterday.
The new location, a step up in size from the narrow, 400-square-feet original, allows him to showcase a collection that has been growing with every season, ever since he started with handmade ties that have been called “some of GQ’s all-time favorites.” Last year, his new line of women’s shirts debuted at Barneys, and now he’ll start stocking them—along with women’s pijamas—at the flagship. (Camille Becerra, chef at Soho spot Navy, recently modeled a shirt, and Trevor Noah donned some polka-dot suspenders in Vogue.) You can also expect in-store exclusives, starting with new colors of Olch’s cotton-wool denim scarves.
