- Zero + Maria Cornejo
225 Mott St., 212-925-3849
Maria Cornejo’s loose dresses, skinny pants, and well-cut coats are deservedly popular (European editors here for shows last month made a point of stopping in), but her knitwear is the star. Her sweaters are comfortable, excellent quality, and cool enough to have that loose, artsy Belgian-design look without being unflattering and shapeless. The palette is simple: There’s always navy, charcoal, black, and ecru as well as a few seasonal shots of something bright (right now, pistachio and lavender). For all that fashion, the prices (starting at $390) are excellent.

So what exactly does “best” mean in a city with thousands of pizza joints, hundreds of celebrity masseuses, and museum-worthy concept shops on every corner? Well, in the case of this, our annual “Best of New York” roundup, there’s a heavy emphasis on what’s new or what has somehow remained virtually unheard of (until now, of course).
