A haven for up-and-coming designers, International Playground offers an eclectic mix of patterned textiles in the standard shapes of casual cool. The art-meets-fashion boutique stocks clothes for both men and women, and stylistically adventurous types will have luck in both departments. Staples on offer include high-waisted trousers, cropped tees, and cozy oversize sweaters, along with bat-winged coats and infinity scarves. There are also hats, messenger bags, jewelry, and bralettes, and Mary Meyer, H Fredriksson, and Osborn shoes with funky color schemes are displayed on chain-supported shelving and racks. In other words, there’s everything a shopper might need to walk away looking like a Chloë Sevigny or Pete Doherty.
