One of Journals first stockists in US is the Henrik Vibskov Boutique in New York. The cool and playful shop is definitely worth a visit. Store Manager Vanessa Fatton, let us in on NYC in the spring time and how the New Yorkers have welcomed Journal.
Q AND A
Henrik Vibskov Boutique NYC Store manager and buyer.
Favourite place in NY for spring time:
My neighborhood waterfront in Greenpoint, or even better - any of the number of ferries that run around the island in the summer.
Best NY experience right now:
Sunset on the Manhattan skyline from any rooftop.
What's a well executed design for you :
Good design is about comfort and form based on function.
What feels like the perfect fit is actually all these things coming together, the designer anticipating what we want before we do.
Our happiest customers feel like they've found the perfect pant that was hiding in their closet all along, but in a fresh new and confident way.
How have the New yorkers welcomed Journal in your shop :
Our customers expect to find Danish design but they like to discover new collections as well.
Journal strikes a nice intersection of affordability and classic design.
Our Journal fans usually stock their closets with multiples - every day easy pieces that work in the office and on the street.
The button-ups have also been a popular pick for their unique and conceptual prints that work well for more formal events.
The Journal team has really nailed a universally wearable style.
Must have item from The Journal spring / summer collection :
The Grit Shirt / Dark Slate - the perfect summery print.
