Coming Soon: The Hoodie Shop at 181 Orchard
Imagine a brick and mortar boutique exclusively devoted to hoodies, everyone’s favorite casual attire. Such is the concept behind a forthcoming shop at 181 Orchard Street. Looks like Skunkfunk has some company!

The Hoodie Shop will offer a smattering of stylish hood-inspired apparel, selling everything from scarves and blazers to the more traditional standbys. Much of the product is custom-made in collaboration with local designers, adding that slight touch of trendy. Which basically equates to wallet-busting price points – upwards of $125.
The northernmost retail space at 181 Orchard has been undergoing a build-out these last couple months, and remains rather sparse at the moment. No furniture or wall decorations to speak of yet, just a handful of magazine clippings taped near the entrance. Friday afternoon, the security gates were hoisted, and we had a chance to chat with proprietor. Apparently, the Hoodie Shop is still in the preliminary stages of development, but should launch early in the fall. Just in time for the quintessential hoodie season.
181 Orchard Street was last home to gothic menswear boutique BBlessing, which closed its doors last July after four years in business. The year of dormancy hath concluded.
