Ports 1961 New York boutique was located in the historic and vibrant Meatpacking District, situated inside of an 1850’s masonry building. The Collection’s understated luxury and exquisite finishing infused an intimate, sculptural environment of natural warmth. Conceived as a private boudoir for exploring the Collection, the Ports 1961 New York store overlaid the romance of history with contemporary vitality. An adjacent triangular lot and landscaped courtyard, created through are configuration of streets in the early 20th century, have been integrated with"the old house" to provide a more generous, unfolding environment with a distinct street presence. The characteristic space, light, material, and display concept of this welcoming shop environment provided a resonant context that is emblematic and complementary to the Collection’s progressive fashion sensibility.
