There’s nothing wrong with dropping the occasional F bomb.
Especially in the case of F Factory, the multibrand pop-up shop opening today in the Design District.
Inside the Moore Building, high-end fashion houses have set up artsy micro boutiques, selling designs throughout the holidays.
Stop by Fendi for a needlepoint stitch kit, a canvas handbag that comes with colorful string (so you can customize your purse). Accessories designer Katherine Fleming displays her classic clutch reconceived by sixteen artists and sells her spring line. And Neon Monster, the hipster toy company, hawks limited-edition prints in the Cave of Wonders, complete with stalagmites and glowing tree stumps.
Also on hand: ultra-luxe — and pseudo-secret — Parisian clothing line Maison Martin Margiela and Christopher Ross’s gold-plated, hand-cast belt buckles.
Sure, the high-end lines may cost a pretty penny.
But f@#k it.
