After Closing His New York Boutique Owen, Phillip Salem Prioritizes Handbags
He has no immediate plans to reopen his boutique, but says "it's definitely an option."
Meet Philip Salem, the 25-Year-Old Behind New NYC Boutique OWEN
Twenty-somethings opening happening boutiques in NYC are becoming a thing. A few months ago, 26-year-old Claire Distenfeld opened up her luxury retail space, Fivestory, and then just last week we trekked over to the Meatpacking district to celebrate the opening of 25-year-old FIT grad Philip Salem's first store, OWEN. The party, which was hosted by Hanneli Mustaparta and attended by some of New York's finest, was the perfect way to fete the the new store, which has been over a year--and much toil--in the making.
