Luxury Boutique ‘Quinn’ Moves Into 181 Orchard Street
Skunkfunk ceased operation on the Lower East Side last October. The property remained dormant until the last couple months when interior remodeling officially began. And in a quick turn of events, a replacement is now on the block, keeping the Hoodie Shop some company at 181 Orchard Street. Another boutique.
This latest entrant in the canyon of hotels is Quinn, a “luxury lifestyle brand” for women. Contrary to its predecessor, the store display is brighter and much more formal (i.e. upscale), with chandeliers, sky lights, and artsy displays.
Here’s all you really need to know about Quinn, copied from their website (in all-caps):
BUILT ON WARDROBE FUNDAMENTALS, QUINN IS A LUXURY LIFESTYLE BRAND THAT EMBODIES EFFORTLESS LUXURY AND MODERN DESIGN. ITS NAME IS DERIVED FROM THE WORD QUINTESSENCE, MEANING, “REPRESENTING THE MOST PERFECT EXAMPLE OF QUALITY OR CLASS”. QUINN OFFERS A WIDE-RANGE OF WOMEN’S APPAREL, ACCESSORIES, LOUNGEWEAR AND HOME GOODS.
With this arrival, it’s now more a tale of two storefronts at 181 Orchard – hip urbanwear versus luxury threads.
We are told that Quinn should open next Tuesday, April 23.
