Since expanding from their original location in Williamsburg with a store on Bond Street in 2008, Oak has been enticing locals and visitors alike with some of the best designers in fashion today, carrying labels such as Acne, Alexander Wang, Rick Owens DRKSHDW, Surface to Air, and Rad by Rad Hourani, as well as Oak’s own private label brands: Oak, Oak Black Label, and A.OK. Progressive local labels rule the racks too, like Harmon and Telfar, sexy but practical shoes from L.D. Tuttle, caps and cloches from Victor Osbourne, and new lines like DRKSHDW, Rick Owens’ line of perfectly worn-in denim and fleece separates that bear his signature futuristic nomad-chic aesthetic. If you’re of the Vans, hoodie and skinny jeans persuasion, Oak can take you from gritty to sleek without compromising any soul.
