Profile

This elegant store for designer vintage apparel more closely resembles neighboring Lower East Side boutiques like Suite Orchard and Honey in the Rough than the typical hit-or-miss downtown vintage shop. Dark floors, exposed-brick walls, and flowery, dimly lit chandeliers lend a sophisticated air to the intimate space, where the store-spanning rows of womenswear are separated into coats, knits, cocktail dresses, and separates. A pantheon of sought-after designer labels mingle on the racks, including blazers from YSL, Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dresses, Isaac Mizrahi jumpers, and Gucci skirts. Dedicated vintage shoppers can also uncover collectible items among the cache, like a limited-edition Burberry trench coat or an original Marimekko print dress. Prices start at $38 (topping out at around $500 for particularly rare finds), but most items fall into the $75 to $225 range. Accessories are chosen with care, like the vibrant selection of gauzy scarves and covetable array of leather handbags. Pairs of boots are lined up on a massive red trunk in the back of the store, and well-preserved oxfords and pumps deck spare shelf space. A small glass case near the register displays a collection of tiny chain-link handbags from the thirties, an uncommon find befitting this selective shop.
