The ROGAN store on the Bowery has been a green fashion destination for so long that we were shocked to hear about its departure from the retail location it’s held for over a decade. The iconic, upscale eco-boutique set the stage for sustainable style in one of the city’s most distinguishable shopping districts, but it officially closed its doors as of April 3, 2013. Luckily not all hope is lost, as ROGAN has hinted at a summer pop-up shop on the horizon!
Here is the short but sweet note ROGAN penned to their Facebook page fans while also encouraging shoppers to visit their online store and summer pop-up shop:
I want you to know, Bowery, it’s not you, it’s me. You are going to go on to do such great things, I think that this will be really good for you. I will always remember our time together with fondness.
ROGAN and sister line Loomstate have been favorites here on Inhabitat and Ecouterre for quite some time now. We’ve partied with them during Earth Day in a basement Subterranean drum circle and celebrated when they partnered with Target for a super green and affordable apparel collection. The brand was founded by designers Rogan Gregory and Scott Mackinlay-Hahn in New York City in 2001. Manufactured locally, the clothing fuses traditional, urban and rural clothing with an affinity for sustainable materials including organic hemp and cotton.
