Derbyshire Mens, an original men’s lifestyle store specializing in contemporary clothing, jewelry, barware and other accessories, will soon join the mix of locally-owned businesses at Halcyon in Forsyth County, Developer RocaPoint Partners announced in a press release.
Slated to open in April 2021, the new concept comes from Tanya Noegel, owner of Society Boutique, and will fill the 1,400 square-foot storefront which previously hosted Citizen Supply’s Outpost pop-up.
Derbyshire, the men’s counterpart to Society, plans to take a similar approach in offering styles for all ages and price points — from T-shirts and joggers to jeans and sports coats plus jewelry, cowboy boots and more.
The name “Derbyshire” is inspired by both Noegel’s affinity for equestrian culture and the sense of community found in classic English pubs. At Derbyshire, Noegel also plans to offer whiskey flights and tastings to guests as well as to stock select bottles and bar cordials for sale.
“Outside of the common department-store brands and unless men are shopping for expensive suits or shoes, there’s a lack of men’s boutiques with friendly customer service to help guys find unique pieces they feel great in — in other words, we’re missing an experience on par with what we create for women at Society,” Noegel said in the release. “At Halcyon, we saw an opportunity to create a place for the men who often come into Society with their female friends or family members, but wait on the sidelines while the women shop. They’ve been asking us to create a place for them, and Derbyshire will be that destination designed with them in mind.”
Founded by Noegel in 2018, Society opened at Halcyon in 2019. In addition to Halcyon, Noegel owns and operates Society locations at North Point Mall and near downtown Alpharetta.
“Halcyon is always looking to bring new experiences for guests, residents and employees, and seamless transition from Citizen Supply to Derbyshire is a great example of this,” Phil Mays, principal at RocaPoint Partners, said. “Thanks to our evolving, exciting and creative mix of retailers and activations as well as the incredible ongoing support from the local community, Halcyon continues to grow, remain resilient and lead the way for trends during an unprecedented era.”
The addition of Derbyshire brings Halcyon’s roster of independent businesses and first-to-market national retailers, restaurants and service providers to 34 concepts. Several more tenants are slated to open soon, including Iron Age Korean Steak House, Board & Brush Creative Studio, and Cattle Shed Wine & Steak Bar.
