HOLIDAY GIFTS AND STYLISH FINDS FOR MEN AT THE &MPERSAND COLLECTIVE

&mpersand Collective 01

Tis that time of the year when finding the perfect gift for the discerning gentleman assumes mounting urgency. But through December 16, New Yorkers may find just the right present guaranteed to bring holiday cheer to men of style at the downtown pop up space from the &mpersand Collective (198 Allen Street). Headlined by men’s outerwear label North & Mark – the one-stop shopping venue brings together an assembly of cohesively curated brands that showcase essential functionality, fine craftsmanship, and sophisticated designs defined by a specifically urban male aesthetic while appealing to men everywhere.

There’s a wide range of selections from which to gift fathers, brothers and significant others. The classic looks of North & Mark’s overcoats are enhanced by their technically advanced materials that provide a comfortable and protective barrier against the harshest elements of winter. Stuart & Lau offers up utilitarian yet unmistakably modern and sleek luggage, bags, wallets and backpacks. There are also custom hats and handsome ties by BM Franklin; socks and underwear from Nice Laundry; timepieces and eye wear from Australian brand The 5th; and the perfect sartorial finishing touches of aromatic solid colognes and grooming products by Fulton &Roarkand the impeccably crafted full-grain Italian leather footwear of Wolf &Shepherd. Additionally, Troy Yoshimoto ceramics, Absolut Art, Element Candles, and tokyobike serves up home and apartment accouterments.

Because most of these brands established recognition from their respective online sites, this transitory shop allows people to tangibly experience the products and serve as a precursor to potential brick and mortar flagships. During the opening night preview, brand founders and designersincluding Steve Cho of North & Mark, Matt Stuart and Jimmy Lau of Stuart & Lau welcomed select men’s fashion media and New York tastemakers to personally introduce their products and highlight the advantages of checking off those gift lists at the &persandCollective.
