Saturday Store Profile: Ten Over Six

Slow and Steady Wins the Race blog's weekly feature SATURDAY STORE PROFILE, takes a look at some of our favorite stores and the people behind them. This week we're featuring TENOVERSIX.

TenOverSix is a fresh approach to the standard fashion multi-label boutique. Instead of focusing on ready-to-wear, it focuses on another element of the industry: accessories. As the most statement-worthy part of fashion, TenOverSix offers fashion-forward, indie, and high-concept designer accessories, all under one roof.

We asked them for five items that would be on their Ultimate Wish List:

1 the entire Zipporah Films collection (some of which we carry at TENOVERSIX.... but i want them ALLLLLL!!!) GREED!

2 and unlimited-lifelong gift certificate to BOOKSOUP so that i can buy books for my family and friends forever

3 all the albums released on the MEXICAN SUMMER label- not only is the music great but the cover art is super beautiful

4 a toy that my dog can chew and never destroy

5 and undocumented (platonic)

Opened in October 2008, the 2,000 sq/ft lifestyle-concept store stocks a wide selection of shoes and handbags, jewelry, hats, belts, lingerie, scarves, sunglasses, swimwear, mens ties, a well-edited selection of ready-to-wear, grooming accessories, small leather goods, home décor, gifts, books, magazines, film, music on vinyl, and art.

TenOverSix aims to embody the general aesthetic of a gallery by presenting well-chosen fashion pieces in category specific installations. In addition to the fashion and design, TenOverSix is constantly curating art with a rotating selection of paintings, photography, and sculpture from local, New York and International artists throughout the shop. TenOverSix hosts pop-up stores, often from New York and permanently hosts a section of books from LA’s Book Soup. The owners intend for the customer to experience fashion, and have fun while shopping the inspirational, multi-sensory atmosphere.

TenOverSix stocks a mix of like-minded designers and brands that share a love of distinctive details, quality and stylish relevance including Acne, Alexander Wang, A.P.C., Comme Des Garcons, Vena Cava, Peter Jensen, Slow and Steady Wins the Race, Loeffler Randall, TenOverSix, Vivienne Westwood, Rachel Comey, Bodkin, VPL and Band of Outsiders to name a few. The boutique has recently launched its TenOverSix Private Label, consisting of ready-to-wear designed by Design Director, Brady Cunningham and shoes and handbags designed by Creative Director, Kristen Lee.
