Founded by design collaboration Various Projects (for which the house line is named), the sleek Project No. 8 (the womens store) and No. 8b (the mens store) provide experimental spaces for design projects that have no other logical home; exquisitely tailored suits from Siki Im are displayed alongside a cork wallet by Maison Martin Margiela. Considering that the founders based the stores around themes like digression, its surprising how well the merchandise--culled from dozens of international designers-- hangs together.
