POP-UP ALERT:

Todd Snyder X Champion Sets Up
A City Gym On Elizabeth Street

ToodSnyderCityGym
Up-and-coming menswear favorite Todd Snyder's first retail project sprang to life over the weekend in NoLita as the doors of his "City Gym" long term pop-up opened to the public for the first time. The store showed signs of being an immediate success with Saturday morning strollers as they wandered in with their dogs and coffee cups.. Designed to be open only until next Spring, the shop showcases the debut of Snyder's collaboration with the heritage athleticwear brand Champion. We caught a preview of the retro-styled line last January, and it looks even better now that we can see the whole offering. As designers do theses days, Snyder has filled out the offerings with Leather Head's luxury footballs, Billykirk bags and  Shinola's watches and bicycles (which we regret to say are swiftly approaching some kind of hype saturation threshold). Mixed in among the updated sweats and t-shirts are also some casual components of Snyder's main line like khakis, softly washed oxford shirts and signature cargo pants, but we will probably have to wait awhile before seeing a store for the designer's complete offerings in New York. His first full boutique is opening next year in Tokyo (most likely in cooperation with a Japanese licensee), but if the City Gym proves to be a success, maybe we will get to see a home for Snyder's non-sweatshirt based lines somewhere in New York, soon.
