GIRLS FROM OMSK Shop Tour: The closet

The GIRLS FROM OMSK Shop Tour is a collaborative project GIRLS FROM OMSK and the shops The closet, Cream, Wake Up, Mr. Ego, Rewind and garde-robe nationale. We wanted to let you know a little more about the shops that carry the collection.

Store name: The closet

The closet (ex Street Teaser) is about a modern way of getting dressed in the morning. It is not about stepping into a “dressing room” for a head-to-toe designer look. It is about finding your everyday style in a mix and match of different brands and styles.

Who are you?

Thomas (buyer and sales)

What is the store concept?

Urban wear chic & trash for men and women

Clothes for a fashionable, urban life, but that also keep a playful edge. These clothes are for living, a mix of styles that reflect the wearer.

Who shops here?

Originally, we had teen audience interested in street wear, but we’ve stayed with our clients and seen a style evolution as they get jobs, start families, etc. It’s still the same urban vibe, but a bit more sophisticated.

Which celebrity would you love to see come in The closet?

For women Bjork. (image from

For men John Cho. (image from

Why do you love GIRLS FROM OMSK?

They are urban wear chic and trash. The collections are broader each season and evolving to match our client.

What is your favorite item from the FW2011 GIRLS FROM OMSK collection?

For men, the BOOTY LOVER. It's in our menswear section because it would work just as well for men and it is big enough to fit men as well as women. (Thomas modeled one to prove the point)

For women the BIRD MILK. It is 2 tops in one, a sheer/opaque black striped top over an opaque inner top. Both tops can be worn separately or together as tunics/dresses/tops and it can even be belted to change the shape. (Here’s me in the BIRD MILK - the one I later ended up taking home with me - good sales pitch!!)

Can you tell us something more?

We are known for our sticker collection. There are people that stop by the shop just to collect our stickers.

The closet is a team effort. Everyone here contributes and we value each other’s ideas
