DONALD FOWLER REJIGGERS A BOLD NEW SHOP. 114 IN WITH THE NEW BY REBECCA SHERMAN. PORTRAITS MINDY BYRD. ART DIRECTION MICHELLE AVIÑA. L ate this summer, the Nasher Sculpture Center's retail gift and book store went on a brief hiatus — but come September 7, it reopens, showcasing newly appointed store director of retail Donald Fowler's impressive collection of new product, all from a crop of carefully sourced international vendors. "I didn't go back to the well for anything," says Fowler, who previously led the home interiors shop at Stanley Korshak before taking the helm at the now-shuttered Nest boutique. "Everything will feel younger and more current. It will be a place where you are getting new ideas all the time." In keeping with the Nasher itself, which mounts world-class exhibitions of contemporary sculpture, Fowler plans to switch out merchandise every season, emphasizing items that complement the museum's current shows. A half-dozen smaller jewelry collections will be represented, including custom pieces by Mia Lara, whose semiprecious stones for her necklaces, earrings, and rings are sourced in India, then handmade into jewelry in Brooklyn. Elizabeth Wimpress has designed a collection exclusively for the store, using crocodile leather, beetle wings, and antique iron nails salvaged from Hurricane Katrina. Also look for German jewelry designer Bernd Wolf's architectural lapis lazuli jewelry and Paris-based MIE's bold, icon- driven necklaces and earrings.
