ABC Carpet & Home, 88 Broadway, at 19th St., mezzanine level; 212-473-3000
Earth-friendly fashion comes in many forms: organic fabric, handsewn details, local production. But rarely do you see them all in one place, as with the new bazaarlike apparel floor at ABC Carpet & Home. Here, embroidered vintage caftans top driftwood tables, handcrafted Pamela Love pendants and Artemas Quibble leather messenger bags fill antiqued cabinets, and eco-luxe John Bartlett striped shirts hang near crystal chandeliers. Naturally, there’s a premium on sustainability: Prices range from $95 to $1,500 and hover at the steep end with the shop’s bigger-name labels, including Libertine and Donna Karan’s Urban Zen.
