British high street, luxury fashion label, Topshop, which quick became a New York favorite after launching stateside in 2009, is now taking their wares from the store racks to poolside in perhaps the chicest summer pop-up store in the city. The brand is partnering with the Thompson LES to host a series of pool shopping parties, the first of which kicked off on June 7.
Topshop and its male counterpart Topman will take over the Poolside Lounge at the Thompson LES the first Thursday of every month this summer. For each event, the hotelís Room 100 will be transformed into an indoor/outdoor boutique, opening onto the hotelís third floor pool terrace. Guests are welcome to shop a collection of summer styles featuring clothing, accessories, and beauty products curated by Topshop and Topmanís expert stylists.
Personal shoppers will also be on hand to help hotel guests and shoppers find the perfect outfit. Each party will also feature guest DJs and a cash bar serving Thompson LESí signature cocktails. Parties start at 6pm and last until 10pm. The best advice is to get there early with friends, score a swimsuit and take a summer evening dip in the pool. A chic fashion party, tasty cocktails and access to a pool ó does anyone need another reason to go?
The first party in the series took place June 7 with an exclusive press preview prior to opening to the public. Guests were invited to shop to the beats of guest DJ Louis Mandelbam while sipping specially created bellinis made with Bulldog Gin. The next party will be July 5 from 6 to 10 pm, followed by August 2 and September 6 at the same time in the evenings. The Thompson LES is located at 190 Allen Street.
