Profile

This venue is closed.

Punk and military styles are frequently linked, though rarely with the sophistication and polish of Alexandre Plokhov's Cloak. Plokhov, a former Soviet soldier and a veteran of Marc Jacobs and Chado Ralph Rucci, has cleverly tailored his menswear line with sharp silhouettes and a look handcrafted from rugged fabrics typically dyed an inky red, blue, or black. This small rectangular shop devoted to the designer’s collection references another gentlemanly style altogether, with masculine leather couches, slightly worn hardwood floors, a massive Chippendale dining table, and a shoe-shining display. Behind the back-wall bookshelf piled with hardcover classics are a hidden office and clandestine fitting rooms where fashion-forward guys can try on denim straight-leg pants, asymmetrical funnel-necked shirts, and cap-sleeve tops that recall the CBGB crowd of the early eighties.
