- Creatures of Comfort
205 Mulberry St., nr. Spring St. 212-925-1005
Among the recent spate of major retail openings, Creatures of Comfort is unrivaled in its hold on the fashion Zeitgeist. Owner Jade Lai fosters in-store collaborations and shows off the fruits of her travels through Asia and Europe alongside an expertly culled mix of independent and A-list labels. Situated within the current nexus of retail hip in Nolita, it lures both downtown fashion bloggers and uptown label mongers with its brave mix of wild prints, loose knits, and off-kilter accessories by labels like Christian Wijnants, Bernhard Willhelm, and Zero + Maria Cornejo.
