New York City luxury menswear retailer Carson Street has announced that it will close its doors after three years of business on June 30, just months after moving to a larger location at 20 Greene Street.
“I am extremely proud of what Carson Street has accomplished: interpreting current trends for our customers, introducing new and inspirational designers and hopefully influencing the way men shop and appreciate fashion,” said co-founder Matt Breen in a statement .”We value the relationships we have built and would like to take this opportunity to thank our vendors, designers, our devoted and hardworking staff, and last but not least, our loyal customers. Our customers will always be a part of our DNA as we move forward.”
Although Carson Street is coming to an end, Breen is devoting his time to Deveaux New York, the luxury sportswear collection he helped launch this February with Carson Street co-founder Brian Trunzo. As previously reported, Trunzo exited the company, as well as Deveaux New York, on May 1.
Trunzo made the announcement of his departure late Friday evening in an email to close industry friends and colleagues. He wrote: “It has been a pleasure working with each of you (in however large or small of a capacity that may have been). As I embark on pursuing new professional and personal endeavors, I ask that you please keep in touch.”
MR will report on further developments as they arise.
