A Store Is Born: Wrong Weather

Out of a former parking garage with awkward, sloping walls and a strangely protruding mezzanine “resembling origami,” the award-winning men’s store Wrong Weather opened its doors in Porto, Portugal, a short while back. Curious name for a shop, especially given its sky-blue walls and sky-high ceiling. Be that as it may, the proprietors certainly know their right from wrong, at least when it comes to stocking merch. A highly edited list includes everyone’s favorites (available both in-store and online): Comme des Garçons, Dries van Noten, DRKSHDW by Rick Owens, Chris&Tibor, Common Projects, Yohji Yamamoto, and of course an eponymous line of contemporary essentials, not to mention a handsome array of men’s grooming prods. And like any concept store, Wrong Weather even has a gallery space to display works by like-minded, equally contrarian artists and photographers. The forecast calls for a visit.
