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.
