Founded in 2008 by Camilla Gale and Rand Niederhoffer, Thistle & Clover is the trendy Brooklyn-based boutique offering a classic and enchanting aesthetic.
Designed by award-winning architectural firm Edward I. Mills + Associates, a company renowned for creating sleek storefronts for luxury brands such as Agnes B. and Kenneth Cole. The Brooklyn boutique hosts a captivating storefront and calming environment to explore pioneering designer talent.
Thistle & Clover’s warm and inviting space is filled with a beautiful selection of clothing, jewellery, and accessories. Offering a unique assortment of pieces that cannot be found elsewhere in the area, thus creating an exclusive aesthetic for the store.
Selecting their specialised array of designers through quarterly Open Calls, this unique sourcing method allows the New York boutique to promote and champion an eclectic array of handpicked treasures from an exciting group of local designers.
Stocking brands such as Ace & Jig, Demylee, Dusen Dusen, Rebecka Froberg, Bittersweets NY and Apotheke, to name a few. The Fort Greene boutique encourages designers to editorialise their brand stories;
“At T & C, we try to do more than just sell a pretty product. We want to tell the story behind our labels, to editorialize all your hard work! And all of that information comes from you. The more you turn your piece of jewelry, or painting or antique into a “story,” the more your customers will understand your product. ” (Camilla & Rand, Etsy 2010)
Hosting a narrative of eclectic pieces with a contemporary twist, the store possesses a captivating aura inviting its clientele to discover and learn about its designers. Straying away from seasonal trends, the Brooklyn-based boutique offers a specialised range of timeless pieces made in New York.
The array of diverse collections appear beautifully refined, showcasing each brand in the best way possible -making it one of New York’s most stylish boutiques.
With special thanks to the Thistle & Clover team for their creative insights and personal comments.
