True to its name, International Playground believes in keeping fashion fun, and now it’s got a new sandbox to romp in: the store dedicated to forward-thinking Lower East Side denizens has moved uptown in spirit with a Soho outpost that opened this weekend.

With items like Chromat caged bustiers, ISLYNYC necklaces with chunky letters stating “BLAH BLAH BLAH” and “ZERO FUCKS,” and limited edition in-house team-ups (such as recent boxer shorts complete with a condom pocket and pervy photo by artist Ben Fredrickson), the shop has been an outré staple on Stanton Street since 2009. ItsSoho sibling stands out among neighbors like Louis Vuitton and Alexander Wang.
