ATTITUDE by Jeanne Shutters; Corrente Co-Op Coming Soon

Posted on: July 5th, 2011 at 6:40 am by

ATTITUDE by Jeanne as we’ve known it has now ceased to exist. The tiny jewelry boutique, which first opened at 179 Orchard Street in September 2009, closed up shop last week. All inventory was removed, and the awning deposed. When the store reopens in August, there will be a new concept along with a thorough makeover.

Owner Jeanne Gonzales informed us that the boutique replacement at 179 Orchard Street will be a joint venture with handbag line Corrente. Yes, the Corrente Co-op. Apparently product sales from some of the current roster designers were on the skid, so an overhaul of sorts was needed. The business plan is also changing with the times. Instead of the consignment model previously utilized, Gonzales and Corrente are implementing the co-op structure. Upon reopening in August, the store will be completely re-tooled and reportedly carry craft by numerous independent designers (Jeanne’s jewelry will still be available).

Meanwhile, during the imminent July redesign, the shop will host a series of local artists showcasing and selling their work.
