Our New STORY is…Out Of Office
All work and no play, means it’s time for an ice cream sundae. At least that’s the thinking behind STORY’s 41st retail concept: Out of Office. Part staycation, part invitation to play hooky from cubicles and conference calls, the summer-right follow up to “Future of Work” STORY offers up all the essentials to kick back in color, get your pool float on, and let that call go to voicemail. The design sets a punchy poolside vibe, grounded by a dip worthy mural from artist Georgia Elrod and supported by plunge-tastic pieces from our friends at Solid and Striped, Chubbies, and Onia. We’ve also thrown a few Funboy floats into our deep end – perfect for inflating your Instagram likes.
Because heat wave, the STORY serves up oh-so many ways to hit refresh without checking an email. Dirty Lemon, the bottled beverages you’ve been seeing all over social media are pouring their beach body approved sips. Charcoal lemonade, anyone? Salty Road Taffy is also on hand to sweeten things up with artisan salt water taffy in flavors like Strawberries and Cream – its equal parts nostalgic and eat the whole box right now.
Too hot for clothes? We’ve got you covered with the beachy accessories Instagram can’t get enough of. London’s Sun Jellies remixes retro with its pastel basket totes and Tidal’s flip flops are the American-made essential you shouldn’t hit the Jitney without. Top things off with a statement tee from Bando, colorful sunnies from Pitch Night alum (and a local designer you’re about to see everywhere) Carla Colour , and Coola sunblock and you’re good to get go.
And by go, we mean skip the afternoon meeting to hang with us on Thursdays when we mix up craft cocktails with a side of all the snacks. We’ll be inviting New York’s latest and greatest taste-makers to share their talents live to the low-key sounds of DJ Chris Annibel of Afrokinetic. So stop hoarding your vacation days and join us for the inspiration you need to play hooky and embrace all things #OOO. .
