It's no small task for a brand to capture the unique energy of such a dynamic place as New York City, but that's exactly what Corridor has managed to do.
The independent menswear label was founded in 2013 by designer Dan Snyder, who drew on a lifetime spent living up and down the US's Northeast Corridor to inform not only Corridor's namesake, but its concept and aesthetic. He created Corridor from his sixth-floor walk-up in the East Village, NYC, with the goal of infusing the brand with the energy of his surroundings and injecting passion and enthusiasm into every piece.
Taking inspiration from "colour, nature, music, parties, love, psychedelic-spiritual experience and New York life", Corridor creates men's clothing that's utterly versatile, with a playful edge: think plaid shirts with various coloured checks, vintage-inspired chunky crochet knits and essential striped, plain and printed tees. Footwear and accessories categories are also covered, with a selection of ultra-comfy yet fashion-forward sneakers, as well as scarves, hats and bags that would all appear at home on even the most seasoned New Yorker.
Corridor takes its commitment to sustainability seriously, ensuring all garments are produced by selectively-partnered, ethically, and environmentally sustainable workshops that specialise in the best quality weaving, knitting and sewing. Its efforts to use sustainable materials translate to biodegradable shirt bags and mailers, sustainably harvested alpaca wool, hangtags that contain marigold seeds for customers to plant and knits made in Peru using undyed and unprocessed organic yarns. With the goal of providing total transparency, every product has a responsibility tab that provides detailed information on exactly how it was made.
