Crown Royal XR

Taste the latest in our Extra Rare Whisky Series, handcrafted with a unique blend that includes the final batch of whiskies from the renowned LaSalle distillery. Located on the island of Montreal, the LaSalle distillery produced whiskies with a unique richness, attributed to the fine water surrounding the island. The resulting whiskies were full-bodied and exceptionally smooth. 

Experience its sophisticated blend of dried fruits and honey in a harmonious balance with spicy notes of Canadian rye, finishing in a lovely, round taste of raisins, cocoa and brown sugar.

3×1 Denim Solution

Scott Morrison’s SoHo store 3×1 is a denim-lover’s dream, allowing shoppers to create their own pair of bespoke jeans, or customize a limited edition pair from one of their existing patterns. Weinterviewed Morrison last summer when the store opened and got a first-hand look into the design process and creation of his jeans. There are many opinions about how to care for premium denim—some people chose to never wash them at all, others swear by the freezer method. For customers who are willing to get their jeans wet, 3×1 is now offering 3×1 Denim Solution to ensure the best care possible.
The new solution is the same formula used at the 15 Mercer Street atelier during their ‘Wet x 1′ process. It eliminates the need for dry cleaning and owners’ fear of bleeding the denim’s rich color during normal wash techniques, but 3×1 recognizes it’s just one of several care methods. An 8 oz. bottle of the solution lasts for about 15 washes and is available for purchase online for $20.

OWEN Boutique


The following project is conceived of as the first in a series of signature stores for the emerging retailer OWEN.  In this first store we define a retail environment that introduces the visitor to the brand and spirit of OWEN and serves as a preview of stores to come.

Located in the Meatpacking District, OWEN occupies an 1,800 square foot space that previously housed a meat storage facility, auto storage, and a floral shop.  In response to the rich history of the space and through the juxtaposition of industrial elements with the handmade, we sought to create a place that is both familiar and timeless.
Here a continuous surface, hand-built out of 25,000 brown paper bags*, arches from floor to ceiling. The repetition of the paper bags results in a honeycomb-like structure that defines a warm, organic volume which sits within the existing industrial brick and concrete space.  Additionally, all clothing, accessories, and jewelry are displayed on quartz slab tables, blackened steel hang-bars and steel and glass vitrines whose linearity and crisp details sit in contrast to the delicate texture of the paper arch beyond.

*for those wondering, we worked with a consultant to find a non-toxic flame retardant saturant (specific to paper) that was used to treat the entire installation in order to achieve a Class A fire rating.

 Men’s Lookbook 

A little box with a beautiful view!

Arranged on a hillside about 40 minutes outside of Ensenada, Mexico, in the heart of Mexico’s emerging wine country, are 20 little cabins that make up Eco Hotel Endémico Resguardo Silvestre, a new green hotel from Mexican hospitality company Grupo Habita and Tijuana-based designer Jorge Gracia.
The little cabins are called EcoLofts and they’re everything the eco-conscious traveler could want. From     construction to completion, the EcoLofts have been carefully designed and placed to complement the   surrounding environment and to give guests the feeling of being secluded in nature.
