New York-based brand Rubin & Chapelle celebrates its homecoming with a Madison Avenue boutique.
One of the first brands to establish a retail presence in New York’s Meatpacking District in 2002, designers Sonja Rubin & Kip Chapelle are excited to return to their roots with this Madison boutique. Inspired by their gallery-esque Malibu location designed by Annabelle Selldorf, the New York space highlights the brand’s aesthetic of seeking perpetual modernity.
Known for their sleek women’s silhouettes of signature essentials, Rubin & Chapelle’s collection is show- cased in this raw luxury space where New York sophistication meets Malibu ease in a stark and minimal atmosphere. With a commitment to waste reduction, the small footprint allows for a carefully curated collection. Each piece tells a story – evoking the brand’s tenets of timeless elegance that allows for seamless day to evening attire. Additionally, with a continued emphasis on tailoring, a bespoke program housed on the second floor will be offered with a range of fabric options for customization.
We are thrilled to open on Madison Avenue which is a classic center piece to New York designer retailer. Being stone throw away from the Marcel Breuer building which has been a special place through out our life in NYC, when housing the Whitney to now being occupied by the Frick collection.
