Spanish shoemaker Martinez Valero occupied this space for twelve years before selling it to one of his designers, Nadine Levenson, in 2004. Reconceptualized and re-branded to showcase Levenson’s eponymous footwear line, Nadine and David (the other half is her partner and husband), the new store is the product of Levenson’s self-proclaimed shopping addiction; the handbags and accessories sold alongside her wild, fun shoes are just what she would like to have in her own closet: cashmere wraps, rabbit scarves, and cowhide valises. Blonde (like the wood paneling in the store) and charismatic, Levenson can barely contain her excitement at finally being able to use her buying skills for the greater good, and will eagerly show off the perfect crocodile clutch to match a leopard-print pump. Because most of the merchandise is of her own design or bought from small European companies, the owner promises you won’t find it anywhere else—which, in a neighborhood where exclusivity comes at a premium (the store is catty-corner to Third Avenue’s Trump Plaza), makes this a very popular shop.


An annual January and June  blow-out sale makes way for spring merchandise.

Key Departments

Accessories: Handbags

Perhaps even more than for its shoes, this store is becoming known for the vintage crocodile bags that Nadine Levenson has been collecting (and is now selling) for twenty years. Most are in mint condition and very reasonably priced.
