The New Stores Keep Coming: Machus and Siljan

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Tue, Nov 15, 2011 at 10:44 AM

Portland retail continues to roll along its merry way this week. Over the weekend, the new outpost from the people who were among the first to define Portland's independent boutique scene with Local35, softly opened its doors. Called Machus, it's taken up residence in the big corner space of the BSide6 building at 542 E Burnside. It's still finding its sea legs and developing a brand list, but as of now it feels like a an even more urbane, slightly industrial shop with tough accessories and stiff A.P.C. denim swinging alongside Alexander Wang tees and Band of Outsiders pieces.


On the e-commerce front, Siljan is hosting the first of what they hope will be periodic open studio events, where you can check out their Scandinavian-centric apparel and accessories for men and women. The selection for now is modest and well-considered, but this is certainly one to watch as it develops. Come say hi on Saturday from 7-10 pm at 2127 N Albina. In the meantime, Machus is open daily.
