THE SEEDS OF SMOKEY VALE COME FROM OUR FOUNDER'S CHILDHOOD VISITS TO THE UK TO SEE HIS ENGLISH RELATIVES.



WE CREATED THIS SPACE AS A PLATFORM FOR OUR FAVORITE BRANDS AND TO ENRICH OUR COMMUNITY.

We love finding great denim brands for the denim fanatics, supporting local jewelry designers by stocking their creations, and hosting exhibitions for up and coming New York artists. When you visit Smokey Vale, you get to experience our curated network and partake of our style. And you’ll look good, too.

Our brick and mortar at 575 Vanderbilt Avenue is in the heart of Prospect Heights, a neighborhood that truly supports its small businesses. With NYC Open Streets, outdoor dining, and the abundance of independent stores, the pulse of the community is palpable.



Our people


PAUL HOWLETT, FOUNDER

Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Paul moved to Brooklyn in the late 80s. A successful career in finance took him to many places like Brazil and New Zealand, but he always had an immense love of fashion and wanted to have his own store that speaks to his dedication to community values. The store’s namesake is a serene neighborhood nestled in the hills of Kingston overlooking the bustling urban landscape of the city. Smokey Vale Brooklyn represents that aspirational place, where you can belong to an elevated community.


LUIS PAEZ, CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Luis moved to Flatbush, Brooklyn at a young age and grew up within a circle of like-minded creatives, musicians, designers and artists. With a background in photography, he worked in many small boutiques always connecting on a personal level with brands he admired. As Creative Director, he curates and organizes store events and products and provides the voice for Smokey Vale’s social media presence.
