Aldo Salon, A Store is Born

September 9, 2011

No one should ever have to choose between caffeine and vodka during Fashion Week, and at the brand spankin’ new Aldo Salon you don’t have to! Aldo’s pop-up shop/lounge on 15th Street is right next to the main entrance at Milk and is the ultimate fashion-week kiosk.

Inside, the Creatures of Comfort newsstand will stock all the FW essentials: the coolest indie mags and zines, including Dossier, LoveCat, and Treats, and staples like The Daily and WWD; VitaCoco; Luna Bars; Proper Attire condoms; roll-up ballet flats; toiletries from glam (MAC lip balm) to just-necessary (dry shampoo, anyone?); and — shhh!, entre nous —mini bottles of Kanon Organic Vodka.

As for the java, look no further than Blue Bottle Coffee, the cult caffeine pit-stop known for its artisanal roasts.

Chipped a nail? Don’t fret. Our friends at Butter London Nails, the fashion industry’s go-to for trend-setting lacquer colors and waterless nail services, are in the house.

Bleach London, the coolest salon in the UK, will also be a part of this year’s pop-up. The Bleach girls are known for their insanely inspired “dip-dye” treatments, and their clients include Florence Welch, Pixie and Peaches Geldoff, and Alice Dellal.

It’s a big, scary fashion week out there, folks, so kick up your feet (and get a pedi while you’re at it) with your friends at Milk and Aldo.

Open 10 am to 8 pm during NYFW / @15 Street next to the main entrance of Milk Studios.
