Gauntlett Cheng is a New York label by Esther Gauntlett and Jenny Cheng founded in 2014. The clothes subliminally explore the emotional state of both the designers, appearing familiar but uneasy. The collections encompass both mens and womenswear that are informed by work like, financial anxiety, sexuality, a sense of home, desire, frustration, and nostalgia. All pieces are hand made in New York City. Stockists include: Opening Ceremony (New York & LA), Soop Soop (Toronto), Radd Lounge (Tokyo), The Feathered (Mexico City), Distal Phalanx (Melbourne), and Paris, Texas (New York).
Gauntlett Cheng's storefront on 357 Canal Street will act as a retail store and showroom with a focus on activating the space with our frequent collaborators, including artists and musicians. The space will feature works from artist collaborations with Jared Madere, Bea Fremderman, and Gobby and music shows by Angels in America and Gobby. The retail element of the storefront will include unique pieces from Gauntlett Cheng's previous collections from the Paris, Texas archive.
