How Forty Five Ten and Tenoversix stack up
Earlier this year, luxury boutique Forty Five Ten announced it was bringing Tenoversix, a shop devoted to emerging designers, under its umbrella. It also announced a new direction by appointing Kristen Cole as President and Chief Creative Officer.
In the months since, Forty Five Ten on Main Street has undergone renovations to make space for Cole’s new ideas—and an expanded Tenoversix shop on the ground floor.
“Forty Five Ten is such a dynamic, multi-faceted brand,” says Cole. “I want to explore those different expressions not only through Tenoversix, but also with upcoming projects like our private label collection, artist and vendor collaborations, and a vintage archive we’re assembling.” Here, a little side-by-side comparison of each brands’ personality…
