Salon by Surrender
The buzz: Surrender’s painfully-hip new sibling is another streetwear-focused multi-label boutique, this time more upscale, refined and avant- garde.
The vibe: Modern minimalism meets Louis XVI-style opulence. White -washed walls are decked with ornate Baroque moldings, while the glossy marble display stands and flooring are laid in graphic geometric patterns (co-founder Earn Chen was inspired by the shape of a stud) for an austere yet glamorous look. Touches of gold around the 1,600 sq. ft. space—at the storefront and on clothes racks—complete the 17th century aesthetic.
The goods: The crème de la crème of luxury streetwear labels including Viktor & Rolf, Christian Dada, Ambush and En Noir to burn—no, incinerate—your plastic on. Probably the most hyped-up collection in store is the exclusive Ambush’s collaboration line with K-pop behemoth G-Dragon (the superstar was also in town for the boutique’s opening), which channels a distinct sporty hip -hop vibe.
Why you’ll be back: Not a place for everyday shopping (we wish), but this should top the list if you’re in the mood to splurge on some of the world’s most revered cutting-edge names—even more to love from Maison Martin Margiela, Anne Valerie Hash and Thom Browne.
