Cities of Days - Water


With Water, Cities of Days moves beyond literal cities to focus on imagined ones, taking as inspiration the fictitious metropoles in Invisible Cities (Italo Calvino) and the protofeminist utopian allegory of The Book of the City of Ladies (Christine de Pizan). Imagining how things can be and striving for that futurity, we embrace the symbolism of water for its mutable nature—that it can change both itself and the rocks it passes over.

For the next four months the store will feature a diverse group of independent designers, artists, architects, writers and artisans. With words, objects, art, apparel, and programming, we engage with these cities of the mind.
