Aldo Salon, A Store is Born
No one should ever have to choose between caffeine and vodka during
Fashion Week, and at the brand spankin’ new Aldo Salon you don’t have to! Aldo’s pop-up shop/lounge on 15th Street is right next to
the main entrance at Milk and is the ultimate fashion-week kiosk.
Inside, the Creatures of Comfort newsstand will stock all the FW
essentials: the coolest indie mags and zines, including Dossier,
LoveCat, and Treats, and staples like The Daily and WWD; VitaCoco;
Luna Bars; Proper Attire condoms; roll-up ballet flats; toiletries
from glam (MAC lip balm) to just-necessary (dry shampoo, anyone?); and — shhh!, entre nous —mini bottles of Kanon Organic Vodka.
As for the java, look no further than Blue Bottle Coffee, the cult
caffeine pit-stop known for its artisanal roasts.
Chipped a nail? Don’t fret. Our friends at Butter London Nails, the
fashion industry’s go-to for trend-setting lacquer colors and
waterless nail services, are in the house.
Bleach London, the coolest salon in the UK, will also be a part of
this year’s pop-up. The Bleach girls are known for their insanely
inspired “dip-dye” treatments, and their clients include Florence
Welch, Pixie and Peaches Geldoff, and Alice Dellal.
It’s a big, scary fashion week out there, folks, so kick up your feet
(and get a pedi while you’re at it) with your friends at Milk and
Open 10 am to 8 pm during NYFW / @15 Street next to the main entrance of Milk Studios.
