Shop easier at a new crop of flagship boutiques
Remember how exciting it was when Carven (and its perfect pastel coats) arrived on Mercer Street? You knew exactly what you wanted, so you went straight to the source. (Battling department-store crowds for a fifth of the selection? No thanks.)
Well, just in time for your seasonal sprees, a new crop of brands are opening their doors for the first time in NYC.
Band of Outsiders is no longer just for Angelenos. Head to Wooster and Spring to score Momofuku cookies--oh, and the weekend pants you very well may live in.
Aurélie Bidermann?s jewels have most likely adorned your one super-chic French friend. And the designer has finally landed stateside on Lafayette and Prince. Our pick: an understated (but statement-making) gold ring.
Rent the Runway is about to save your behind. When a last-minute event pops up, walk into the new, full-fledged store (on 16th and Fifth). Then walk out with this Narciso Rodriguez number. Or, pony up $75 a month to borrow and swap everyday accessories as much as you want.
