ALWAYSNEVER NEW YORK was an adventure in online men’s retailing for Peter Nguyen, assistant designer at Robert Geller, when he founded it in the spring of 2010. Was an adventure, because this summer he decided to exit the e-store to focus on his own men’s line, Keeps.
But the shop must go on! And so an anonymous crew of intrepid e-tailers with different backgrounds—Odin New York, Denim Bar Arlington, Stel’s Boston—has taken up the cause, relaunching ALWAYSNEVER this week with a curated selection from the archives, conceptual-leaning pieces by the likes of Number (N)ine, Ann Demeulemeester, Raf Simons, Undercover, Rick Owens and, of course, Robert Geller. While it’s limited to exactly one piece per style, the selection will be updated weekly. In the meantime, keep your eye on Keeps!
