Jeter says he wanted to develop his style, and it’s a powerful one. The models’ colorful costumes, original hair pieces and bold makeup are often set against robust backgrounds like the Brooklyn Bridge and the industrial architecture of the Meatpacking District. Jeter’s from Gary, Indiana, and a taste for the unfinished beauty of big buildings has stayed with him. So has his love for the long opera gloves his mother used to wear – a frequent feature on the models. Check out more of Jeter's art on his site and a collection from his April 15-16 show on Openhouse's Facebook page.

Once spring hits, fashion pop ups in downtown New York are as consistent as Yankee baseball in up, uptown. This week, Openhouse is hosting a fashion pop up store for Horizon Designer Sales and Pearl & Company. We’ve got pin stripes and polka dots, floral prints and zebra stripes. Shoes, dresses, jewelry, tank tops, even a small dog named Brutus. Dog not for sale! Everything else is, and for great prices. The downtown pop up runs from 11 am to 8 pm and ends Thursday evening.
Fashion lines at the Openhouse pop up are 65% to 85% off retail prices, and Horizon Designer Sales provided some great labels. Betsey Johnson, Oscar de la Renta, Cynthia Rowley, Dolce Vita, Ben Sherman and Edun to name a few. Edun is U2 front-man Bono’s label, so you know the line goes great with sunglasses. Plus, proceeds from Edun sales go to African schools, and the cotton’s all organic.
Photographer Amy Sussman Beautifully Captures Openhouse's Incase for Andy Warhol event for the Wall Street Journal
“Is that a Warhol banana in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?”
“Well, both … “
“Thanks, I’m flattered! And happy to let you know that Incase Designs put that Warhol in your pocket. Don’t have a Warhol in your pocket? Well you can now. Incase just launched a line of Andy Warhol-inspired cases for the iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pros and shoulder bags, too. Just as Apple brought style to computers and phones, Incase is bring the style to computer and phone protection.”
“K, but what are the styles?”
“There’s the arctic camo with a touch of yellow (my favorite); the classic Velvet Underground banana; his Cow Wallpaper from ’66; sweet flowers; and six dollar signs for the socially-conscious banker in all of us. Cool?"
"Good talk. See you out there."

RelativeMO, the London- and Paris-based PR agency, finished up two open press days Tuesday and we thoughts we’d share some pics. The Autumn/Winter 2011 collections that graced European catwalks – including some beautiful items from Mary Katrantzou – filled the front room at Openhouse, giving fashion editors an intimate peek. Welcome back, RelativeMO, and see you next time!
"A Nice Warm Place to Park It"
If you’re susceptible to seasonal affective disorder, or just bummed out by large expanses of gray snow, find a haven in Nolita next week at the Openhouse Gallery. The 4,500-square-foot space is transforming itself into Park Here, a pop-up “public indoor park” complete with benches and faux grassy knolls designed by decorators American Foliage. The park will feature all the essentials to fool you into thinking it’s already summer, including lunch-break yoga classes, movies on the lawn, and lobster rolls from Luke’s Lobster on weekends. (201 Mulberry St., nr. Kenmare St.; 1/7–1/30; 11 a.m.–6 p.m. daily; free).
