It may only be 500 square feet, but this diminutive East Village shop is packed with the cool labels of right now: Alexander Wang, Shipley & Halmos, Boy by Band of Outsiders, Rag & Bone, Phillip Lim, Vena Cava. Its owners, Eddy Chai (brother of designer Richard) and Paul Birardi, were co-founders of the relaxed, cool menswear line Odin, so when they turned this tattoo parlor into a boutique a year and a half ago, they knew the landscape, and the customer. Additional adornments, like Loeffler Randall heels and Philip Crangi jewelry, are artfully arranged among the clothes.
