Retail News: Blackbird Expands
Ballard’s essential menswear shop is opening a second location slightly south…in Portland.
The shop will open this summer just two blocks from the Ace Hotel (holy hipster heaven) on W Burnside and NW 13th Ave.
As to what’ll be for sale at the new shop? Tell your bike-riding BFs in Portland not to expect woolly plaid shirts and the like. Miller says, ‘To me Portland doesn’t need another Pendleton outlet, so you can expect a lot of our own Blackbird label and our more seriously design-driven brands like Robert Geller and Rick Owens.’
I like it.
Portland, Blackbird’s gonna look good on you.
