Profile

This venue is closed.

This small womenswear store specializes in artful designs and unusual silhouettes. Unlike many nearby boutiques, Factoriem doesn’t attempt to cram dozens of designers into its sparse space; instead, four stand-alone metal racks display only a handful of judiciously chosen labels. Some, like Alexander Berardi, are well-established, while up-and-coming talents like Wakana Koike are relatively unknown. The slim, sleekly designed store is outfitted with pale-gray walls, black flooring, and moody overhead lights; a glowing neon “Factoriem” sign and spools of tropical-colored thread piled in the front window provide restrained flashes of color. Each rack holds the work of one to two designers, including short linen jackets, Alexander Berardi’s silk dresses, cutout knit tops and modal tunics by Ideeen, and billowy cloud-print blouses by Wakana Koike. Shelves along the opposite wall hold accessories, like quilted white puffy handbags by Ideeen, Koike’s colorful totes, and statement-making feathered headbands in vivid shades.
