Coming Soon: Seleven Gallery at 145 Orchard Street

Posted on: September 21st, 2010 at 6:19 am by

NY Wax Boutique lasted barely seven months at 145 Orchard Street before shuttering for good last June.  Now, after a brief vacancy period, the space is already back in action. Yesterday afternoon, the store awning was updated and a branded sign installed above the entrance.  And what’s in store here, you ask? An international boutique called Seleven Gallery.

Of course, not to be confused with 7-11.  Anyway, Seleven and its Red Monkey Company imprint originated in Hong Kong, and have a total of three brick-and-mortar locations.  Two in the home country and one in Taiwan. And their threads and accessories are farmed out to stores all over the world.  Yet 145 Orchard Street is their big stateside retail push, it seems (lucky us!). Seleven has a few subsidiary brands beneath its umbrella, each specializing predominantly in jeans and tees.

Clippings from yesterday’s Post and Daily News currently block any view of the interior, which should be ready any day now.  Their Facebook page mentions an “October 2010” launch. It’s up to the rest of us to keep guessing the date.
