Nau’s sort of had a pop-up store before. The eco-ethical clothing company opened a shop in the Beverly Center in April 2008 — only to go out of business just a couple weeks later, closing up that and all its other stores. But Nau restructured and returned — and this time is opening a real pop-up store in New York City.
On Wed., Nov. 12, Nau will celebrate the opening of here/nau/nyc, its Soho pop-up shop at 69 Mercer St., with a launch party featuring music from The Secret Machines, art, and eco-fashion shopping.
Nau describes here/nau/nyc as “part store, part music venue, part lounge and part gallery” — that also includes a coffee bar downstairs. The space will host a number of eco-artsy and green foodie events — check the Nau calendar for details — as well as showcase sustainable design, since the store will be outfitted with locally sourced, sustainable store fixtures Nau people found through dumpster diving.
Follow Nau’s blog, The Thought Kitchen, to find out more about the process Nau went through to create the eco pop-up. And stop by the store before it closes on Dec. 31!
