We love a list, and a (Secret) Local List is even better. Today, DFW Style Daily’s exclusive series continues with insider recommendations for local dining, shopping, and more.
Founding his first retail venture at 16 years old, Jonathan Anthony was an established aesthete and entrepreneur by the time he finished high school. Now best known for his Uptown boutique, Remix, Anthony fuses fashion with innovation. Inside his shop, new, vintage, custom, and high-end consignment pieces intermingle irresistibly.
“Meshing new collections with designer resale is almost unheard of, but I don’t believe the two should ever be mutually exclusive,” Anthony quips. “The mix is much more interesting.” This summer, he’ll expand his multi-faceted mission with the opening of a men’s concept in the Dallas Design District. Giving DFW Style Daily exclusive scoop on the venue, Anthony confessed that the project will feature a style lab, barbershop, and art gallery.
Though he’s not dishing full details just yet, the artistic and creative curator is willing to spill a few local secrets. Read on for his top hot spots and summertime hangouts.
Foodie Favorite: “I’m now a regular at CrushCraft! It’s an awesome fusion of Thai food and Southwest flavor,” Anthony raves of the new Routh Street eatery. “They have incredible vegetarian and tofu options.”
Go-To Boutique: Though his local loyalty lies with Remix, today’s insider admits an affinity for Austin’s Collective Status. He notes, “I shop the store online all the time. It’s definitely my stop for diverse collections and unique staples.”
Artistic Addiction: Citing artist Eric Lowry – known as El Cappy to his 78,000-plus Instagram followers – among his current inspirations, Anthony explains, “He became prominent for designing custom sneakers, but I’ve always appreciated his art. We’ve been collaborating since his recent transition from Detroit to Dallas, and we’re working on customized vintage luggage for Remix.”
Best Buys: “Index at Mockingbird Station is my source for interesting, inexpensive t-shirts and other basics,” the expert states of his top destination for style steals. “It started as purely a skateboarding shop, but has expanded into apparel and accessories.”
I Heart Dallas: Last but not least, calling it “so Texas and so much fun,” Anthony hits Topgolf with friends from abroad. Down-home watering holes like Truck Yard and Deep Ellum’s Black Swan Saloon are also go-to haunts for visitors from near and far.
