The moment we set foot in Gabriela and Nick Annacone’s loft on the east side of Manhattan, we were met with shelves of Bearbricks, a floor-to-ceiling window showcasing views stretching from Midtown to the Upper East Side, and the most impressively large fig tree we’ve ever seen. Gabriela, who leads brand partnerships and experiential marketing at Shopify and is the founder of Coquito, handed us a glass of red. Nick, the COO of Kith, threw on a playlist to set the mood.
With Saint Jhn playing in the background, we headed up the spiral staircase to their Jordan, adidas, Kith, Aimé Leon Dore, Off-White, and Saks Potts–filled closets. In Gabriela’s, a strong graphic tee collection (note that prior to Shopify she worked for Universal’s merch arm, Bravado, which stocked pop-up shops for the likes of Travis Scott and Lil Yachty) that she likes to pair with her various Jacquemus pants and accessories. As for Nick, he had an array of clean, high-quality basics, easy to throw on with his perfectly broken-in, raw A.P.C. denim, and a plethora of collab pieces. Both shoe closets were equally as impressive, with Gabriela’s A1 collection of Asics, Yeezys, and Jordans and Nick’s Fragment Jordans, hand-dyed Off-White x Nike Prestos, and bespoke Air Forces.
To say we had a good time sorting through everything and balancing it all around their place would be an understatement. The couple had a million stories to tell about the pieces in their home, like a signed Nobu cookbook, Kith Jordan casts, Roger Federer sneakers (that actually belonged to the tennis player himself), and a piece of art from Toronto artist Cov-alum Bryan Espiritu.
