“When shopping to help set a play, the first-year Yale Drama School student scours shops and attics for the ‘clothing that best fits the personality’ of the characters. On occasion, he comes across other treasures – the a 1960s-era tie, a vintage Lacoste sweater, a pair of Vans sneakers – that he buys for their nearly unique appeal. For example, when Brown returned last winter from a visit to his hometown in Idaho he brought back five vintage cowboy shirts he’d found in antique shops….
“And Brown had a cool place to bring the shirts. He hung them up in Annex, the recently opened Audubon Arts district boutique he helped found with six of his friends and colleagues at the Yale Drama School. Conceived and developed by costume designers and set builders, Annex features clothes, jewelry, paintings, furniture and knickknacks either made or acquired by Yale students with an eye for aesthetic.”
