These days, it’s only a matter of time before anything fantastic in Manhattan moves to Brooklyn (see Kaight, Jodi Arnold). Barney’s Co-op is following that migration with its first-ever Kings County locale. The immense bi-level shop has a modern vibe, complete with a black steel-and-glass staircase. And like other Co-ops, this one will also be a runway haven, with men’s and women’s fashion-forward apparel and accessories packing the space (expect names like Thom Browne, Opening Ceremony, Comme des Garçons, Helmut Lang and Vena Cava). The opening coincides with the chain’s 25th anniversary, and to celebrate, popular designers have created exclusive pieces, including Alexander Wang limited-edition leather backpacks ($895); Rogan women’s cozy sweaters ($350); 3.1 Phillip Lim halter dresses with draping, neck detail and back ties ($650); and Rag & Bone striped underwear—boxer shorts for him and boy shorts for her ($55 each). Guys can nab Levi’s selvage-denim jeans based on a 1985 archival style ($225) or house-brand canvas totes stuffed with three cotton pullovers: a V-neck, a henley and a hoodie ($225).
