Union was founded in 1989, New York
City, located on Spring Street in Soho.
The name of the store reflected the
ideals of bringing together an unlikely set of brands to coexist
under the same roof, while making complete sense.
In the 90's they were known to bring
foreign brands from overseas to the local consumer, selecting a
unique and experimental range of items from each brand, they
introduced a fresh perspective of fashion that was unlike any other
store at the time. The approach appealed to the counter-culture
youth of the city, eventually becoming a trusted source for style
Now owned by Chris Gibbs, who worked
for Union in the 90s in NYC, he took over the LA chapter in the
early 2000's and has kept the same principles of the original
Union, bringing in a curated selection of up and coming designers
with "off-the-beaten-path" high-end brands from all over the globe
under the one roof.
