Martin Keehn Boutique Celebrates New Home on Ludlow Street

Posted on: March 21st, 2019 at 5:03 am by

Menswear designer Martin Keehn began selling on the Lower East Side nine years ago. The boutique occupied a unique fractional address across from Seward Park – 27 1/2 Essex Street – until last summer.

The eponymous store made the move around the corner to 53 Ludlow Street back in August. (This was the former home of the Silk Cakes bakery.) Nine months later, though, they’re finally celebrating with an official grand opening. Slated for May 3, it’s timed to coincide with Frieze New York.

Martin Keehn sells accessories, jeans, shorts, T-shirts, hoodies, outerwear, leather pieces and limited runs. The product lines are geared toward the “art-minded, fashion-obsessed, multi-racial demographic between the ages of 16 and 65.” The proprietor himself worked as a master tailor for some of the best designers and celebrities, including Calvin Klein, David Bowie, Nicki Minaj, and Ozzy Osbourne.
