His designs are daring, dramatic and decadent, so it's no surprise that Alexander McQueen's flagship New York boutique evokes the same sentiments. Fashioned like a futuristic pod, the store's sloping white-washed walls and frosted light boxes lead shoppers on a circular route through the museum-like space. Beautifully arranged accessories and eyewear sit in spotless glass cases, and impeccably tailored clothes are draped on mannequins suspended from the ceiling. Although best known for his over-the-top style and couture fashion, the designer brings some modest looks to his Meatpacking District location with items like cotton tank tops and high-heeled sandals. Sales associates tend to leave you alone while you browse, so let them know when you’re ready to try on that $2,930 cotton silk dress.
