The brain child of Leandra Medine will add soon a physical location to its online domain.
According to WWD, Medine’s online destination for all those both fashionable and intelligent Man Repeller will open a pop-up location on Canal Street on March 1. Called MR Bazaar, the location will serve as a “physical manifestation of the site,” Medine told WWD, acting as one part merchandise space and one part community center.
The move is an extension of the online destination’s “community event series,” created in June 2016, reports WWD, and Medine says that the pop-up space seeks to solidify the Man Repeller community and present readers with a physical space to engage with the website’s culture.
“It got me thinking that it would be incredible if we had a space where we could bring the dot-com to life, where people could come and shop, sit and read, get cool recommendations, drink a coffee and discover a new food,” she told WWD.
With the pop-up location sticking around at 265 Canal Street for only a month, you may want to stop by before the doors close: WWD says the site will feature “Monogram x Man Repeller collaboration T-shirts, the MR by Man Repeller shoe collection, hats, T-shirts and mugs,” as well as “limited-edition Name Glo x Man Repeller neon LED lights — in the shape of boobs.”
Time to start planning a trip!
