David Mullen, the founder and designer of Save Khaki in New York, recently opened Save Haven on Lafayette Street. Our friend Miye, who lives next door, dropped in recently to talk to Mullen about his new venture. “The concept is simple but modern,” he says, “We carry items a guy needs for his daily lifestyle; less, but better.” Although there is currently no website, you can peruse the offerings at Save Notes.
