Akkaway’s signature tomboy meets feminine design is taking a move to New York City with a pop-up shop located at 85 Mercer Street. From April 15-April 26, Beckley is introducing its California meets New York girl aesthetic featuring their Spring/Summer 2015 Collection. The store also highlights a selection of favorable brands including denim from Baldwin, jewelry from Tarin Thomas and stationary from Wild Hart Paper Co.
