Wanna geek out a bit and have a deep conversation about Japanese topcoats by Sage de Cret and current NYC cult designers? Stop by Meyvn in Logan Square and look for co-owner Noah Zagor, or any other knowledgeable and friendly staff member. Opened in March last year by Zagor, Tony Kim and Ryan Bardsley, their shop boasts happening lines such as Rough & Tumble, Munich-based A Kind of Guise, Oniki—a celebrated collab between Umit Benan and Tomorrowland—and local Glass House Shirtmakers. All in a carefully curated environment decorated with art by Stephen Eichhorn and antique Japanese fabric panels.
