Seize sur Vingt



It is not very often one finds an automobile parked in a small retail shop in Manhattan. Groupe 16sur20 at 267 Elizabeth Street in NoLita is a fashion cooperative started by James and Gwendolyn Jurney, founders of high end clothing label Seize sur Vingt (meaning 16 out of 20 - a French school grade which equals an "A"), which is sold here along with their other line, Troglodyte Homunuclus. Apparently something artsy is happening on Elizabeth Street. Similarly to the post I did recently on the Elizabeth Street Gallery (across from 11 Spring Street), fusion again rears its head. In this case, clothing meets art, performances, and autos. From a January 8, 2007, article in the New York Times: "Groupe 16Sur20, a cousin of the NoLiTa store Seize sur Vingt that is perhaps New York's only gallery/clothing emporium/used car lot, even has its own curator, who's put together shows by the likes of Nan Goldin and Larry Clark. They share space with the stock of men's polo shirts, soccer jerseys and a Lamborghini." Currently, a yellow 1987 Ferrari Testarossa (shown in the photo) is being offered for $90K...
