SELFRIDGES x AWGE

"THE BODEGA IS SIGNIFICANT BECAUSE MINORITIES OWNED IT - HISPANICS, ARABS, AND KOREANS. OUTSIDE OF NEW YORK CITY, YOU DON’T EXPERIENCE THE WHOLE TRADITIONAL BODEGA FEEL. YOU DON’T SEE CATS LYING ON THE BREAD, OR ASLEEP ON THE RICE. ULTIMATELY, IT’S ABOUT INCLUSION. DIFFERENT ETHNIC MINORITIES COMING TOGETHER AND LIVING TOGETHER COHESIVELY - AND THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR DECADES. THAT’S WHY I’M BRINGING THIS FUSION OF DIFFERENT CULTURES, MANIFESTED IN ONE AWGE BODEGA. IT IS GHETTO, BUT NOT TRASHY, WHICH IS VERY TRUE FOR NEW YORK CITY."
