Styleliner Igloo Pops Up at Bar Dupont

| November 26, 2012 | Homepage Latest The Latest

Styleliner is already known for its innovative boutique—a roving delivery truck full of accessories that made stops in DC this past summer—but the brand is branching out with another fun structure this holiday season: the Styleliner Igloo. Temporarily constructed on the patio of Bar Dupont at the Dupont Circle Hotel, the pop-up boutique is open through December 24.

The Styleliner brand is curated by founder and co-owner Joey Wolffer, and sells signature jewelry, bags, shoes, hats, and scarves by a host of international designers, including Italian designer Franco Ferrari. “We have new jewelry from Babylone and KMO, both Parisian designers that were DC favorites last time we were in town,” Wolffer says, noting that much of the jewelry comprises recent finds from her trips to London, Paris, and the Netherlands.

“From the outside it looks like an igloo with ice block graphics. Inside, the igloo feels just like the inside of the truck, bohemian yet glam and filled with unique accessories,” adds Styleliner co-owner Sara Droz. “Since we only have one truck right now, it's hard to be everywhere. …We brainstormed temporary structures that would work well in the environment during winter months. There’s really nothing more fun than an igloo. It gets everyone so excited!”

The fashion-forward igloo—which originally served as the starting gate for downhill skiing at the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002—will also feature original handbags designed by Wolffer. The line of Isla Roarke handbags, created with Laetitia Stanfield of Roarke NYC, ranges from clutches to totes and incorporates leather accents and vibrant hand-woven fabrics from places like South America and India.

Stop by this traveling accessories store for holiday shopping and hot chocolate from 11:30 AM to 7:30 PM daily. 1500 New Hampshire Ave.
