This spacious accessories shop caters to handbag lovers who lust after status bags but opt against dropping thousands at Louis Vuitton or Prada nearby. Staggered on glass shelves throughout the store, the handbag assortment promotes an affection for leather (the mention of “pleather” elicits shudders from the staff), with J.J. Winters clutches finished with a metallic gold sheen, Bulga satchels, and studded totes from Sabina, a Brooklyn designer. To cultivate an air of covetability, Add generally carries five or fewer of each item—new styles arrive every two weeks, and any bag that goes unsold for a month is sent back to its company. Besides purses, Edge sunglasses perch on an island in the center of the store, surrounded by cases of beaded chandelier earrings, Pupil’s delicate gold-plated necklaces, and Jessica Kagan Cushman’s inscribed resin bracelets.
