I was thrilled to have to wait in line to get close to the Penguin shirts and Alternative Apparel hoodies yesterday at BlackBlue. This fantastically styled Selby & Dale men’s boutique – where American heritage was cool before J. Crew said so – deserves to thrive. From the flannels draped over wooden rods to owner Steven Kang’s cuffed skinny jeans and untied Red Wing work boots to the leather bags artfully displayed beside old photographs on the white walls – it’s the sort of place that makes you want to embody the whole look. Now, women will be able to do just that: Kang is carefully adding a small assortment of women’s apparel including A.P.C. and Hyden Yoo. And BlackBlue turned the lens on local fashion photographer and Minneapoline blogger Ellen Dahl Lawson to model the first arrivals. Love it all? See more here.
