When Oki-ni.com had a change around we knew that creative energy would pop up somewhere. LN-CC is a new retail concept consisting of an online platform launching later this month followed by the opening of a physical space in October. The project is being headed up by John Skelton (formerly Creative Director of Oki-ni) with Dan Mitchell of Bad Passion and a team of specialists including art book dealer Conor Donlon, sound engineer Mickey Boyle and set designer Gary Card who will be working on the design of the physical space.
Product will include menswear and womenswear- both new and archive collections based around a concept of unisex styling, music, books, and limited worldwide releases. The concept space designed by Gary Card will initially be open on an appointment basis and will host a library, gallery space and a sophisticated sound system fitted by legendary sound engineer Mickey Boyle for private events.
This project is more than a store, it's an evolving platform of curated ideas encompassing clothing, music and art in both a physical and digital environment.
Can't wait to see it. This will be one of the most exciting retail offerings of the season and will certainly give Dover Street market a run for their money.
