NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Premium streetwear brand DIPLOMACY is creating their #DiplomaticAF holiday pop-up shop at 323 Canal Street, running from November 29 through December 2.
The launch will pop on Thursday, November 29th with a party hosted by celebrated rapper Joey Bada$$ and his DJ/Producer Powers Pleasant.
The temporary space, a raw fusion of disparate elements that might best be described as industrial disco; is located on the southern edge of Soho at 323 Canal Street between Mercer and Greene. It will feature the fresh designs of Creative Director Eric Archibald and highlight the work of The Lineage Project, an organization that brings mindfulness programs to incarcerated, homeless, and academically vulnerable youth.
Jeff Fagen, CEO of Diplomacy, says “We feel The Lineage Project aligns really well with the diplomatic ethos at the core of our brand. We look forward to helping them build a larger platform upon which to carry out their noble mission.”
Store Hours: Thursday – Saturday 12-8; Sunday 12-6
Launch Party: Thursday 7-9pm
Diplomacy makes clothes to live by. Clothes with meaning behind the threads. We call it thought-wear. It is our desire to remind the world of the long-lost art of Diplomacy, to champion the practice of thoughtfulness, tact, and civility that is the ethos behind our brand.
