Luxury Accessories Brand ‘Title of Work’ Opens Flagship on Orchard Street

Posted on: September 18th, 2018 at 5:05 am by

The eponymous Site 57 gallery spent two years in the ground floor of 57 Orchard Street before folding not long ago. It’s been replaced. A new fashion boutique just opened behind that corrugated metal awning.

Title of Work is the name of the newcomer, which specializes in men’s formal accessories that “skillfully merges art, science, and fashion.” To the neighborhood layperson, that means neckties, bowties, pocket squares, pins, necklaces, wallets, scarves, etc.

The store at 57 Orchard Street is flagship for the luxury brand (“handmade in New York”), which also sells its wares in stores across the country.

In other news, guess that means the copper condo tower proposal from three years ago is still on ice. You’ll recall that 57 Orchard Street sold to Waterbridge Capital as part of a $27 million package with the adjacent Pink Building back in 2013, and returned two years later with plans for this fifteen-story cantilevered development.
