Located off the beaten paths of Tribeca commerce, the Gigantic Brand boutique was originally opened in 2004 by Brian Devine—founder of Gigantic Pictures, Gigantic Music, and Gigantic Artspace—as a place to sell his companies’ films and music. But add some upscale international fashion, Japanese designer toys, and works by emerging visual artists and voila—a retail store is born. Though modest in size and decor, Gigantic packs a lot of punch into its diminutive confines: Much of the floor is dedicated to one-of-a-kind men’s and women’s clothing by seldom-seen overseas designers like Stephan Schneider, Emma Cook, and Wooyoungmi. Thrown into the mix is a small hodgepodge of indie CDs—some are off the Gigantic record label, like Human Television and Seedy Gonzales, while others are just staff favorites—and an array of independent feature and documentary DVDs that will leave any film snob slobbering. Towards the back of the store, a wall dedicated to works by emerging artists sits directly across from a mounted collection of 2K T-shirts, which feature printed designs by famous pop artists like Björk, Basquiat, and Karen Richter.Extra
On the second Tuesdays of spring, fall, and winter months, Gigantic Brand hosts free in-store screenings (with popcorn!) of some of their favorite films.Sales
