We’re walking down Freeman Alley, and we saw this, like, way radical courtyard with flamingo topiaries and a basement-level boutique with pink neon windows.
We’re like, OMG, the jewelry shop Fenton-Fallon is opening tomorrow. Designer Dana Lorenz is totally the opposite of boring! She envisions the space to be like that posh townhouse in Working Girl (white moldings, bronze display cases) with ’80s touches (fashion lithographs, furniture covered in a silk jacquard print Thakoon gave her).
She’s showcasing two ga-ga jewelry collections. Fenton is her first, a fine line of bondage chains wound and bound with studs and gems (for, like, Molly Ringwald in The Breakfast Club). Fallon, the diversion line, is less about the assembly of complex pieces, more about layering and studding with chain fringes (for, like, Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink).
And there are racks of vintage Norma Kamali, Oscar de la Renta, YSL, things with shoulder pads, bandage dresses, and band tees.
It’s awesome to the max.
Fenton-Fallon, end of Freeman Alley, between Bowery and Chrystie Street (212-477-1315). To see styles, go to danalorenz.com.
