Portland Oregon seems to have gone avant-garde, at least judging from the range of experimental fashion carried in the newly opened store Stand up Comedy. True to its name many of the designers carried in the store are ironic and self-reflexive. They range from the New York-based Slow and Steady Wins the Race and Patrik Rzepski to the Danish artist/designer Henrik Vibskov and the Antwerp-based company Pelican Avenue. The focus of the store—conceptual design and the interaction between art and fashion—strengthened by what appears to be a tightly-edited selection of objects makes Stand Up Comedy a great addition to the city!
