Armani Exchange accessories designer Yevgeniy Tsarkov added another consignment option to the vintage-packed East Village in September 2009, specializing in Japanese designers and salvaged denim. The minimal, whitewashed space showcases modern, casual clothing for women and men, with a solid collection of jeans from covetable lines like Ksubi and Karl Lagerfeld for both sexes. Accessories like ties, handbags, wallets, and costume jewelry round out the mix. Almost everything here is marked down to under $100, and while there are plenty of upscale designer wares to ogle, variety trumps high-end selectivity. (A pair of YSL wedges might be shelved next to unmarred Kenneth Cole boots.) Consignment is by appointment only, and profits are shared fifty-fifty.
