VFILES + Gallagher’s
I was so excited to see that the Visionaire + Mike Gallagher’s collaborative space, VFILES, is finally open at 12 Mercer in Soho. I’ve been awaiting the unveil of the space since wanting to go to Gallagher’s a few months ago only to find it closed. Michael Gallagher is the king of vintage fashion magazines. His previous shop in the East Village was the envy of the fashion industry and designer’s first stop each season for inspiration. Although I was never lucky enough to visit his original space, the new VFILES shop is fantastic. The vintage periodicals are categorized and all kept in pristine condition. I was so excited to find an Art and Fashion-themed copy of L’OFFICIEL from 1990 and the American Vogue from the month and year I was born in, January 1993.
