Piombo’s New Soho Shop Has Colorful Preppy Classics

There’s a new shop in town in the heart of NYC’s Soho where the clothing is colored like a pack of Skittles. I visited Piombo to see first hand what they had and found they definitely have great pieces for honeymoon packing.

Massimo Piombo launched the brand in Italy as a young man and this flagship marks the brand’s expansion which is a welcome addition to one of New York’s most visited neighborhoods.

When you first walk into 149 Spring Street, you are smacked with the vibrancy of the clothing against a wash of sky-blue walls, ceiling, and floors. The prices are affordable from a linen striped button-down shirt for $65 to denim pants for $55. For the guys— there are shorts and linen shirts in every pigment you can imagine, blazers and striped t-shirts and more. For the ladies there are classic shapes —but also crocheted vests in multi-colored patterns to top off a look or geometric patterned dress that’s as bold as it gets. The accessories have an ethnic vibe like a tasseled fedora or a Peruvian canvas tote. Looking for a Kelly-green trench? You will find it here. The essence of the brand is a relaxed easy dressing—using many natural fabrics. It’s a mix and match paradise—the pieces all work together to create your unique look. Even though they are known for color they also have styles in neutral tans and creams if you are into a quieter look. I couldn’t help buying an outfit myself.

Massimo Piombo’s original company has grown and evolved quite a bit over the years acquiring other clothiers under the umbrella OVS Apparel Group and designing affordable classics appealing to a wide audience. The New York flagship is the company’s foray into the USA and they plan to expand worldwide. Next up—Madrid and Paris.

Pack your honeymoon suitcase with some Piombo items which can easily integrate with your other pieces, so you can spend more time taking in the moments that count.
