Unsatisfied with a purely textual existence, Dossier Journal is shedding its glossy pages and becoming something more: the wholly three-dimensional Dossier Shop. Think of it as an extension of the magazine: an intelligent blend of fashion, art, literature and design. Then add some really cool tote bags.
This Saturday, April 18th, Dossier will be opening its first store on DeKalb Avenue in Ft. Greene. Look forward to clothing by independent designers like APC, In God We Trust, Bless and Samantha Pleet; high-end vintage stuff ranging from YSL and Commes des Garçons to timeless Puccis and Missoni; artist monographs and exhibition catalogues from Greene Naftali and James Fuentes; small-run artist books from independent presses like Libraryman, Hassla and Seems Books; jewelry from Pamela Love, Anna Sheffield and Digby and Iona; limited edition prints and lithographs from artists like David Armstrong and Alexander Calder; customized Dossier tote bags by Zac Posen, Fanny Bostrom and Hisham Bharoocha; literary journals, poetry chapbooks, and first editions; magazines such as Capricious, The Journal, Acne Paper, and, of course, Dossier; vintage corkscrews, records, cookbooks, and on and on. We even have plants.
In appreciation for our readers, we’re offering a 10% friends and family discount for this first week (good through April 24 if you ask for it). The store will be open Tuesday through Sunday (closed Monday) from 12:00 to 7:00. Come visit us in 244 DeKalb Ave between Clermont and Vanderbilt.
