Kit and Ace Launches SoHo Pop-Up Shop

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Hello, Soho! Kit and Ace, the Canadian Technical Luxury brand, is setting up shop (a pop-up shop, that is) in a new downtown location at 152 Spring Street. The space opens this Thursday, October 29.

Just over a year old, the brand has already opened 34 stores including one in Nolita, and has no plans on stopping anytime soon. Their new pop-up will sell a range of selected items from the collection. Goods include core styles made with their signature Technical Cashmere™, a machine-washable fabric that’s both soft and durable.

“SoHo has historically been a hub for creativity in New York, so the area resonates with the people we design for,” said JJ Wilson, Co-Founder and Head of Brand at Kit and Ace. “The response to our Nolita shop has been positive and we’re looking forward to expanding our presence nearby.”

Step inside the store, and you’ll find custom quality pieces all around. And art lovers will be glad to hear that the shop includes a unique gallery-style area called “The Wall” featuring the work of local installation artist, Christina Watka.

Shannon Wilson, Co-Founder and Creative Director at Kit and Ace says, “We’ve created a new category of clothing, which we call Technical Luxury™, which is functional and luxurious apparel designed to move with you from day to night. The way we design our clothing is innovative, and we bring that same level of consideration to the build out of our retail spaces.”

The space will remain open for the next four months, leaving plenty of time to shop and shop again.
