York

Nothing gets past you guys. This time “DCG” alerted us to a report in MR Magazine from three weeks ago, in which J. Press announces that the Ovadia brothers have been relieved of their duties designing for spinoff collection York Street.

Ironically the line is not being killed but instead expanded internationally, beginning with Japan.

Ariel and Shimon Ovadia had served as creative directors of the capsule collection since its launch in 2012.

In other York Street news, this time the street in New Haven, J.Press this week announced the opening of its new location at 260 College Street, which is just one door down from the storied Owl Shop, one of the last great campus tobacconists.

Google pulls up this street view when the new address is entered:
