Norwegian designers Simen Staalnacke, Peder Børresen, and Stefan Dahlkvist curate this high-ceilinged Greene Street store stocked with Scandinavian wares. Pink cuff links proclaiming “make waffles not war” are displayed above a rack of three-piece suits and below a large video screen with scenes of a pink tractor accumulating snowflakes on a snowy Norwegian mountainside. Blazers, shirts, and pants hang on wheeled industrial racks painted pink and yellow while boxes of split logs sit near stacks of wooly sweaters; tables are laden with suede boots, as well as Scandinavian treats such as vodka-filled candies. With dashing sixpence caps, three-piece suits, long underwear, and leather “dancing” shoes, this store can dress a dandy from head to toe. The style here combines over-the-top attention to a garment’s unusual details, like hidden pockets and decorative pink stitching and piping along seams, with fun twists, such as tiny tractor pins affixed to each jacket’s outer pocket. In addition to dress clothes, they also carry outdoor jackets, T-shirts, jeans, and cargo pants along with a smaller collection of women’s dresses, shirts, and coats.
