donald robertson 'fashion is nuts' installation at the shop at the highline.

better known for its obscure line up of essential sundries, everything from martin margiela candles to marlboro lights, the shop at the standard has become a local retail phenomena in its own right. with the majority of hotel gift stores being somewhat dreary, this place is a gem. plenty of hardened locals shop here as well as hotel guests and assorted international flora. the shop is also host to a variety of events catering specifically to street wise art and fashion deities. so while you're trying on a pair of sunglasses with kaleidoscopic lenses, you're more than likely to run into a glass of champagne or 2. this one gets a big thumbs up. top notch oddities and good times.
