Apolis: Nomad Market at Steven Alan Chelsea
October 24th, 2012 | Events, In Stock, New Arrivals, Photos
The Apolis: Nomad Market has taken up residence in our Chelsea store. In addition to the new Apolis + Steven Alan Chelsea market tote, the tent has several menswear options including denim, soft tees, oxford shirts, jackets, pants, accessories, and more. The pop-up also features a video installation where you can find out more about their mission and humanitarian projects through a series of short films.
In keeping with Apolis’ mission of advocacy through industry, the Chelsea Market Tote was co-designed with and made by a women’s cooperative in Bangladesh. The group of artisans, comprised of 21 women, has now done over 32 city series bags. The project has proven to be extremely successful, demonstrating that a local community can directly impact this artisan group and connecting the hands that make the product to the hands that purchase it.
The Nomad Market launched with an event last week hosted by Apolis founders and brothers Raan and Shea Parton. Some highlights from the evening:
Thanks to Shea and Raan for a great event! If you haven’t seen it yet, come by 140 10th Avenue and check out the pop-up. It’ll be here until November 21st.
