Stepping into Jay Kos’ boutique in Nolita is like walking into a madman’s museum of color, texture, and skins. Come in and be welcomed by a plethora reptiles that have been turned into pants and boots, gaze at the exotic fabrics that make the garments, and try to find a color in the visible spectrum that has not been used in some application or another.
The store is a reflection of the designer that lend his name to it, eclectic and sophisticated, trendy yet stylish. Drawing inspiration from everyday vignettes, Jay has become a master of sourcing and designing textiles, the very ones he uses for his unorthodox pieces.
