To our Groupe community,
As with all non-essential New York stores, we have temporarily closed the Groupe shop, but are open online at groupe.nyc. Although we do not have a definitive re-opening date, we know that New York will persevere and make it to the other side of this. Groupe and Seize sur Vingt have survived two major crisis periods (2001, 2008) and one of the things we’ve learned is that it’s impossible to overstate the strength of our community and chosen home.
Balancing the need for isolation with our human need for connection is a continuing challenge for all of us. The entire concept of Groupe is based on the notion of a collective that provides true support for its artistic community, all the way to our friends and colleagues in factories and mills around the world.
We feel the best way to start is to think first of the people and groups who mean the most to you, stay in touch and try to do what you can to support them during these difficult times.
We are touched and grateful to those of you who have reached out to us with words of support and encouragement. Please continue to feel free to get in touch with us at any time. We’re here for any and all of your needs. We’ll be coordinating messengers in NYC and all online orders/shipments will continue as normal. Thanks for reading! Looking forward to better times soon. Please keep in touch and stay safe.
All our best,Gwen & James Jurney
