Dossier, the enchanting arts and fashion journal, has opened a store in their Brooklyn brownstone headquarters. Designed as an extension of their bi-annual mag, the shop evinces the intelligent style and creative energy that Dossier has become known for since launching last year.
The diminutive space packs an impressive melange of fashion, design, art and literature for sale, with prices ranging from $25 to $1,000 for cuffs by jeweler Pamela Love (way less than they run at Bergdorf Goodman, by the way). The curated wear for women and men runs along one side of the store. There you'll find modern and vintage pieces from high-end labels, including Cardigan summer knits, sexy rompers by Samantha Pleet, simple Dunderdon separates, silk dresses by Frank Tell, hand-dyed scarves from Sunshine & Shadow and a few smokin' Christian Dior bathing suits from the 1980s. In addition to the impressive racks, Dossier has a wonderful selection of art books, literary journals and poetry chapbooks to satisfy the curious minds, as well as limited edition prints and novelty goods -- super cool items if it's home decór you're after.
The Dossier Shop offers a free canvas tote with each purchase, or you can buy the one Zac Posen made for the magazine's collaborative series: an albino crocodile skin bag with calfskin lining and chain handles. (When Dossier sent him canvas to design, this is what he came back with!! Only Zac...) It's just an example of the unique finds and creative spirit that make this boutique one of the more charming stops in our "Shop of the Week" travels.
