Cleaning Soho: While store vacancies still many Manhattan blocks look like unfinished crossword puzzles, developers and landlords are increasingly inclined to welcome pop-ups.

One of the latest examples is a two-month new outpost for South Korean company Lavery, which specializes in natural detergents and stain-removal products. The recent opening of the pop-up marks the launch of the brand in the US

A company dedicated to helping consumers keep clothes in place and buy new seems to be a sign of the times. Well aware of how consumers intend to reduce waste to reduce their environmental impact, Lavery aims to drive longevity and low product turnover.

Located at 120 Wooster Street, the 2,400-square-foot space is Lavery’s first foray into the brick-and-mortar space. The address was previously held by MM LaFleur and is near Tibi and Atelier Beauté Chanel. Practical approaches include a display of bottled detergent and stain removal products and completely white washing machines. According to the company, only plant based ingredients are used.

A wall screen plays a video of blue water swirling. The minimalist setting features a wooden table and chairs, a white bulbous sofa, and armchairs for shoppers as they learn more about the products. Shopkeepers will also get stain remover service at the new location. Alisha Goldstein and her Jane Smith agency handled the creative direction and design of the pop-up.

Beck declined to comment on projected sales, but said a Seoul launch is planned for this summer. Lavery is looking at international expansion in London, Paris and other cities for the next year and beyond, she said, and it is also looking at expanding its retail presence in the US beyond this first pop-up.

The company’s Seoul-based founder Jong Min Baek said via email that part of the appeal of the location was the neighborhood being “a central location” for its customer base. Striving to help extend the lifespan of clothing, Lavery wanted her New York outpost to be near “beautiful, fashionable clothing stores.” — Rosemary Feitelberg
