Victor Osborne Shutters Orchard Street Shop
This image has been archived or removed.
For Victor Osborne, the first, and ultimately last sign of trouble came at the end of February. It was then that we spied the inventory being boxed up, the interior a haphazard disaster. Days later, the atelier would vacate the Lower East Side. Total tenure at 160 Orchard Street clocked in just shy of four years.
Even though an announcement on the official website proclaims business ended on March 1, the illuminated storefront remained in play for a couple weeks longer. Now it’s all dismantled, and the entire footprint is ready for something new. Meantime, the hat slingers are currently “moving locations.” No update on the address just yet.
