Debut New York Showcasing at 77 East Houston
Soho Cleaners vacated 77 East Houston at the end of November, and hastily settled a block north at 301 Elizabeth Street. The requisite inaction followed – drawn security gates and leasing signs in the windows. For the time being, however, the space has essentially become a glorified advertisement for a nearby boutique business.
The two-year-old boutique Debut New York, currently residing at 298 Mulberry, is using the vacant 77 East Houston as a proverbial showcase to coax passersby into a sale. A handful of accessory-adorned podiums stand unattended behind the glass, boasting elements from their collection. Moreover, each piece is accompanied by small exhibition labels for pricing. The whole marketing stunt channels the aesthetic of the store itself, acting more like a pop-up gallery display than retail joint.
For its numerous female-oriented product lines, Debut New York relies on a rotating roster of roughly twenty young designers. Seasonal catalog offerings consist of women’s clothing, footwear, jewelry, and handbags.
