Cool Shop Find: Project No. 8 NYC

(Project No. 8 NYC has been reported closed)

Opened in 2009 as a destination for sophisticated yet quirky menswear, Project No. 8 has since evolved into a carefully curated mix of unique objects, publications, and high-quality men’s and women’s fashion.

Created by Various Projects (the design collective of Elizabeth Beer and Brian Janusiak) Project No. 8 was conceived as a showcase for designers and artists with a multidisciplinary twist – the result is a unique and fresh take on the (yawn!) over-saturated ‘downtown design boutique’ genre.

In this stylishly spartan, light-filled space in the Lower East Side, artfully arranged one-off jewelry pieces, sneakers, and limited-edition design books sit alongside sharply tailored blazers by Siki Im, classic watches from Braun, and buttery-soft leather goods by the architect-turned-designer Isaac Reina.

Look beyond the objects of desire, however, and you’ll find gems such as the kitsch-cool key tags with playful phrases such as “What would Yeezus Do?” and “So that happened”.
