Ohne Titel Bows At BOFFO-------
“We’re trying to create a place for our label in this whole world we exist in, and this is a great step,” Alexa Adams, one half of the design duo behind Ohne Titel, told Style.com at last night’s opening reception for her BOFFO pop-up shop downtown. (While the flash shop opened December 1, she and Flora Gill decided to wait until all the cool kids came back from Art Basel in Miami before officially celebrating).
Ohne Titel is the last label to showcase its clothing in the BOFFO space at 57 Walker this year. Like the five previous designers in the series (including Nikki Dekker and Maayan Zilberman of The Lake & Stars and Nicola Formichetti), Ohne Titel was chosen as an up-and-coming talent by the BOFFO board and given a choice of artists and architects to collaborate with on the space, which has been transformed into a customized pop-up store through December 14. “We immediately related to EASTON+COMBS in our appreciation for color, undulating forms, and surface texture,” Adams said. The EASTON+COMBS-designed installation features tomato red colored aluminum tiles patchworked together with acrylic ornaments, from which hang the clothes from Ohne Titel’s Fall and Resort collections. Also in the mix is their first-ever handbag (a slim, unisex tote), men’s T-shirts (also a first), and a special-edition basic dress cut from Supima cotton (every BOFFO designer is asked to create something using the fabric).
Ohne Titel pop-up shop, 57 Walker St., NYC, open through December 14.
