Party On for Armani... Pilati Casts Pitt... Earnest Sewn's Art Supplies...

Whether it's the impact of the economy or another reason, there will be far fewer parties during New York Fashion Week next month.

EARNEST SEWN’S ART SUPPLIES: A quaint corner of London’s East End will find a home in New York come April. Denim label Earnest Sewn has tapped the British artist Rob Ryan, who’s known for his paper cutout works that feature delicate, silhouetted figures, to re-create his quirky East London shop, Ryantown, in the company’s Washington Street store. The installation, called Ryantown USA, will be open for 45 days beginning April 1, in Earnest Sewn’s project space at the store. It will spotlight products including an Earnest Sewn T-shirt with a print by Ryan, teddy bears Ryan has customized with Earnest Sewn denim, glassware, bandanas and cushions. Prices for the products haven’t been confirmed yet, a spokeswoman for Earnest Sewn said. The pop-up shop also will carry handmade products by Ryan, such as his paper cutout designs and silk screen prints.

“I’m a huge fan of Rob’s,” said Scott Morrison, founder and designer of Earnest Sewn. “After we had a chance to spend some time with him at his studio in London, it was nearly impossible to imagine us not doing something with him.”

Earnest Sewn will launch the project with an event at the store April 1, and the collaborative products also will be sold at Ryan’s London store during the installation’s run.
