Launched today, the Refinery29 x BBlessing Pop-Up Shop is a collaboration between BBlessing, the newish men's boutique in the Lower East Side, and Refinery29, NYC's doyenne of shopping, offering 13 items exclusively in the online store until 3 June 2007. In addition to carrying BBlessing's own label, Surface to Air, Raf by Raf Simons and Rag & Bone, they've teamed up to create an exclusive line that includes t-shirts, books and jewelry.
The tees, called "The Beyond," are a series featuring line drawings by NY-based artist (and BBlessing in-house designer) Nicholas Kratochvil. Jewelry includes two necklaces each by Surface 2 Air (a Polished Steel Key Pendant and a Rubber-Dipped Sword Pendant) and Digby & Iona (a Fighting cock in either silver with topaz or gold with rubies). Two gilt-edged, Italian leather-bound booksâa hardcover blank notebook and a travel journal with a soft cover, international info, maps and graph paperâround out the collection.
