need wedding dress? have $100? mary ping’s your girl

-------

Though Mary Ping’s many fans couldn’t help but mourn when the designer put her eponymous line on hiatus last year, there’s been reason to celebrate Ping’s decision as well. A full-time focus on her Slow and Steady Wins the Race brand has allowed Ping to go gangbusters, launching both SSWTR’s much-beloved collection of sunglasses with Sol Moscot and a line of shoes that sold out at Opening Ceremony within a week of delivery. Now Ping is opening a store—a department store, in fact. “I’m taking the idea of a big department store, and kind of smushing all the levels into one floor,” Ping explains of her Slow and Steady pop-up, which opens today at the Saatchi & Saatchi space in west Soho. Shoppers will be able to browse the complete archive of Slow and Steady products displayed inside the unfinished wood and raw canvas “departments” Ping has installed at the space, and she’s got a few new tricks up her sleeve, too. “We have a perfume
counter and a bridal atelier.” Bridal? “Yup. There’s one wedding dress, and it costs $100.”
