Patron of the New

Al Abayan, former creative director of Tribeca’s now-closed branch of the cult Tokyo boutique Number (N)ine, and his partner Lisa Pak, lend their sartorial expertise to Patron of the New, a luxury lifestyle shop also located in Tribeca. Abayan’s handpicked the international collection of unique men’s and women’s clothing, accessories, housewares and more from the likes of Korean-American menswear designer Siki Im, Parisian label Établissement and Nicolas Andreas Taralis. Most wares carry hefty price tags, but there are some affordable pieces, such as jewelry, beauty products, and accessories.
