Those tired of schlepping to the Lower East Side or—gasp!—Urban Outfitters to nab reasonably priced threads and wares can look to Life:Curated for unsung clothing brands and handpicked home décor. Low-end lines from high-end designers pepper the racks here; the men’s side carries a smart mix of street wear and classic looks from Creep by Hiroshi Awai, General Assembly, and Slvdr, while the women’s selections stretch from Something Else by Natalie Wood blouses to Hansel From Basel knit thigh-highs. Aesthetically matched furnishings (a porcelain and gold animal skull, or a raw wood and leather bench) complete the store’s titular mission: “well-curated, high-quality items at accessible price points.
