Ludlow Blunt spent a healthy seven years hairdressing at 138 Ludlow Street – even after morphing from Tommy Gunsbut quit the Lower East Side back in March. Instead, owner Russell Manley decided to consolidate operations at the Williamsburg outpost.

Now turnover is afoot at 138 Ludlow. Its brief flirtation with vacation has officially ended. For the last month, a crew of youngsters has been building out the interior behind a black curtain. Even placing mysterious sculptures in the windows. When asked about the identity of the shop, one of the folks onsite replied only that it was a “secret.” Not anymore.

A nameplate nailed to the door reveals that artist-designer John Brevard is opening a new concept store here. The eponymous shop will likely feature a collection of jewelry and wares inspired by the “principles of natural order that span from fashion and design, to architecture.”

More introductions…

We are a luxury fashion, design, and accessories brand focused on connecting people by revealing patterns in human behavior and nature through reflected designs and experiences. These designs reflect the inner strength and boldness of every individual, inspiring a way of living in harmony with nature and those around us.

The John Brevard shop remains under wraps for the time being.
