HAUTE HIPPIE CONTINUES ITS RETAIL EXPANSION, OPENING A SECOND MANHATTAN STOREFRONT AT 1070 MADISON AVENUE
New York – From sitting on the floor in India beading her own creations, to sketching on the beaches of Jamaica; the Athenee in Paris and the streets of her home-base in New York City, Haute Hippie designer Trish Wescoat Pound is constantly on the move. Inspired by her travels and nomadic spirit, Wescoat Pound’s world is being brought to life with a new retail experience, presenting her signature rock-n-roll, bohemian aesthetic (“Ro-Bo”). Following the successful opening of the brand’s first retail store in Nolita this January, Haute Hippie will open its second permanent Manhattan storefront this Friday March 9th, located at 1070 Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side.
The new store will feature not only the breadth of both Haute Hippie and haute hoodie collections, but will also showcase a number of key pieces specially curated for the location. Highlights from the Spring collection include: embellished silk dresses, floral printed blouses and skirts, rock ‘n’ roll edgy studded leather jackets, screen printed tees, and sequin mini skirts. There will also be a selection of essential accessories including: must-have jewelry, fringed handbags and edgy-chic studded belts.
In similar vein to the downtown location, the Upper East Side store will embrace the “haute lifestyle” of both brands with its intimate Haute Hippie décor. A blend of bohemian sensibility, rock ‘n’ roll edge, sophistication and comfort: cowhide rugs, hand-embellished rhinestone longhorns, classic couches, and crystal chandeliers.
“We are so delighted to open our second Haute Hippie retail location in New York City and to be able to present our haute world to the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Both the Haute Hippie and haute hoodie brands speak to a breadth of consumers and Madison Avenue is such a dream retail location that we feel both excited and privileged to find ourselves here. Our hope is to open our world up to an ever greater number of RoBo women and global nomads and further develop our presence in the City.”
