The open, gallery-like space of the Metropolitan Pavilion is the perfect venue to host SIM; it is intimate in feeling, while also providing enough space to socially distance. Banks of windows guarantee plenty of natural sunlight across the space, which features 16′ high ceilings and American white oak floors.
Attendees will find modern, sartorial collections of exceptional sportswear, tailored clothing, footwear and accessories from around the globe.
