This narrow shop for high-end handbags and leather goods is known for its classic yet trend-conscious repertoire. Beyond a colorfully cluttered window display of totes, purses, wallets, and clutches, owner Ali Keskinkaya has amassed a fashion-forward array of Italian, French, and U.S. brands. One wall shows the functional elbow bags that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Ritchie once dangled in unison in InStyle; a nearby shelf holds fold-up carry-ons by Longchamp that can be zipped up or down to hide or reveal more space and a splashy band of color; behind glass are Lodis's chic two-tone credit card-holders; and hidden in back are sturdy nylon Dante Beatrix baby totes. While suits speed-walk past the Midtown store, PR-types inside snag leather goods by Isabella Fiore, Jack Gomme, and Charm & Luck, as well as Delfino's eponymous line of goods, leaving aspiring fashionistas to rifle through the Bric's knock-offs.
Twice yearly sales in January and July.
