In May 2013, the Urban Cricket hopped to the Lower East Side and settled alongside like-minded designer Pamela Barsky at 29 Essex Street. Both brands share the commercial footprint as studio and store for their unique fashion sundries. Now, eighteen months later, we are told Ms. Barsky is moving “part of her operation” to a sub-level space one block away.
Barsky’s new studio is beneath the stairwell of 17 Essex in the former home of the Tuff City Styles tattoo shop, which shuttered last February after failure to pay rent. The new creative habitat is nearly complete. Yesterday we spotted the installation of a sign housing above the security gates. Also, graffiti on the door alludes to their imminent arrival.
Pamela Barksy is a Los Angeles artist transplant who emblazons accessories with creative witticisms. For instance, “New York is My Boyfriend” and “I’m too smart to live in LA.”
Our question is where’s the “Seward Park is my Main Squeeze” bag?
