Denim fashion label Funky Soul has inked a deal for a 3,400-square-foot lease at 530 Seventh Avenue, where it plans to create a showroom, The Commercial Observer has learned.
The Funky Soul line utilizes the latest technology to produce “quality, body-enhancing apparel,” according to a statement from the company.
Onward Kashiyama! said all involved parties last Thursday, as the Japanese fashion house by that name renewed its lease at 530 Seventh Avenue for three years.
Tokyo-based Onward Kashiyama distributes a number of men’s and women’s apparel lines, including preppy men’s clothier J. Press. The Connecticut-born retailer is perhaps best known for selling sweaters emblazoned with the logo of Skull and Bones, Yale University’s most notorious fraternal organization. Onward also owns top ballet shoe makers Chacott and Freed of London, and designs custom clothes for brands such as Calvin Klein and Sonia Rykiel.
