Black Box Boutique: awesome clothes, friendly staff, and….. false advertising. Say hi to Ryan & Gosling. Seems that Friday here at Surrey Crescent we are all about the cords. Ryan wears an Opening Ceremony cord suit, Ksubi shoes, and a Commoner’s_Alike shirt. Mr Gosling wears Doc’s, Dr Denim cords, and a Claude Maus tee. Both wear Moscot ‘lemtosh’ sunglasses. All items listed are currently in stock. Signatures are going free with every purchase. xo
Jasmine works at Black Box on the weekends. She studies health science and commerce at Auckland uni. Sometimes I call her ‘Princess Jasmine’, because we always have a royal good time when we work together.
-My name has no e.
So Jasmin, where do you look for wardrobe inspiration?
-Nowhere that comes to mind. I’m not really a blog person. I like Stockholm street style though.
-Do you worship any fashion icons?
-Ummmm, wouldn’t say worship, but I like Rodarte.
-They are two women. American? Yeah, American designers. Their style’s quite out there and different. I wouldn’t really wear it, but…. it’s interesting. It can be quite crazy.
-You dress pretty crazy don’t you…?
-Yep, in my crazy jeans and my crazy plain boots and my crazy plain sweater. Ha.
-Yeah we think you’re crazy cool. Rodarte isn’t stocked at Black Box though; so we don’t care about them. What’s your favourite brand we stock?
-Opening Ceremony, and soon to be, ACNE.
-What do like best about working at Black Box?
-Of course you can say working with me is the reason.
-Umm, no, that’s not it.
-Okay, that is the reason. [I can see in her eyes she’s lying.] I’m really looking forward to seeing the new Opening Ceremony shoes that are about to come in.
-Same. So bummed they don’t make heals in a size 44 mens.
-You’re such a dick.
-Thanks, well…. that should cover it. Good work Jasmin; now, if you don’t mind, the entire sunglass collection needs dusting.
-Yes, your Royal Highness.
The Opening Ceremony shoes Jasmin mentioned are arriving at end of the month. Her pick of the bunch is the BRENDA 2, which she is pictured wearing, and the JUNGLE 6, which is pictured below.
Opening Ceremony comes direct to us from New York City. Initially a clothing store situated in the Soho district, the boutique quickly gained a reputation for stocking unique, fashion forward attire, hard to find anywhere else. Today, Opening Ceremony is a multifaceted retail environment comprised of shops, showroom, and private label collection, establishing a new international creative forum, from downtown Manhattan.
At Black Box we are proud to bring you hand-picked styles from their label collection. Opening Ceremony has a distinct model for their design process, an international creative forum appropriated from the founder of the modern Olympics, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, who creatively merged sports, business, and global participation. Focusing on global participation, each season presents ranges that team up emerging American talent with both young and established designers from all over the world. Collaborations to date include Chloë Sevigny, Spike Jonze, Pendleton, Levi’s, Timberland, Keds, Robert Clergerie, and more. A growing list of participating countries including Hong Kong, Brazil, Sweden, Germany, United Kingdom, Japan, France, and Argentina.
