For all you Proenza-philes out there
Tanya Taylor, a Parsons grad and former designer for Elizabeth and James, has all the geometric prints and perforated leather you could ever hope for. That, and her pink metallic motorcycle jacket is just everything.
Because you still want to be Kate Middleton
Precision, sophistication and all things British are the basics behind Nonoo. Although designer Misha Nonoo was raised in London, she produces all her ladylike pieces here in Manhattan’s Garment District. (BRB, swiping this little black dress.)
Available at Bergdorf Goodman, Fifth Ave. at 58th St.
If you've wished Alexander Wang had a slightly more feminine side
Then you?ll probably lose it over Adeam. Designer Hanako Maeda (see what she did there?) has lived in NYC since she was a child but draws considerable influence from her birthplace of Tokyo. Expect a mix of dreamy prints and edgy leather accents.
Available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Fifth Ave. at 51st St.
The next Carolina Herrera
Meet Rosie Assoulin--the dressmaker for the new generation of ladies who lunch. From striking red pantsuits to color-blocked gowns, she’s putting a fresh spin on socialite wear...if that’s your thing. And if it’s not, you’ll still be all the more wiser when you see her among the Oscar de la Rentas and Vera Wangs of the world soon.
Calling all daytime-pajama aficionados
NYC stylist Jaclyn Hodes wanted to make an impact on how the industry sources its materials, and thus, AWAVEAWAKE was born. The lingerie-inspired dresses, caftans and jumpsuits (gah, this jumpsuit!) are constructed out of ethically produced fabrics and plant-based dyes.
Available at Opening Ceremony, Howard and Centre sts.
NYC?s newest ?It? bag
You may have noticed a certain little bucket bag popping up everywhere (mostly in our dreams). The name: Mansur Gavriel. A spanking new accessories brand, it offers only two main styles for the time being--the aforementioned bucket and a perfectly practical tote--but really, what else do you need?

When it comes to shopping for new duds, there’s no better splurge than a local one. Good for the economy, good for the city.
But as much as we love ourselves some Tibi, Tory Burch and Rebecca Taylor, there’s always that morning you throw on your ferocious new leather jacket and stroll into the office ready to blow everyone away...only to realize your cube mate has bought the exact same thing.
No, we’re never quitting DVF. But in the pursuit of your next truly remarkable standout piece, it’s worth a peek at the city’s freshest talent.
