341 E. 9th St., nr. First Ave.; 212-420-7770
This 400-square-foot shop is packed with never-worn pieces from European distributors and boutique owners: Rick Owens chiffon jackets ($445; originally $1,050), See by Chloé tops ($145; originally $350), ruffled Boudicca blouses ($375; originally $1,060), and leather-and-Lucite Marni pumps ($245; originally $630). And unlike the stress-inducing disarray at old-school outlets, the décor here resembles a posh hotel lobby; check the bellhop’s cart near the door for new arrivals from Milan.
