Good afternoon Lower East Siders! Today I’m letting you in on downtown’s latest secret. In the next week, on 83 Rivington, just off Orchard Street- our neighborhood welcomes TASTE COLLECTION! A collective of fun new friends and fiery fashion. How did this community come to fruition, you ask?
In the Spring of 2016, three NYC creatives bonded over food and wine. Bottles of bubbly and many meals later, a unique retail and media concept emerged! With over three decades of combined experience in finance, food and fashion husband and wife team Stephen Young and Reggie Aguinaldo along with Sophie Sumner created Taste Collection New York. While wandering around the world, this voyaging trio has developed an eye for wonderful pieces as special and sparkly as you.
Modeling a few of our pieces is dear friend Steph Retuya, highlighting a jacket by Silent Arrow, pants by Lacausa, bandeau by Fortnight and bodysuits by Thistle & Spire. Photography by our amazing Anna Frumenti.
Although our grand opening comes this November, we invite you to join us next week in our little corner of the world for some tea, music and metallic merchandise! Our unique selection offers merchandise for men and women from intimates, athleisure, loungewear, swimwear to fashion accessories, beauty, home and art. Pull on your pink sweater and head over! We can’t wait to see you soon.
