If Rudyard Kipling and Chaka Khan teamed up to open a clothing store, it might look like Planet Green, a West Village shop that merges tropical style with an urban sensibility. The store celebrates fashions from Tibet, Zimbabwe, and the Americas with bold sarongs inspired by Asian woodcut paintings and tribal African patterns, billowy tie-dyed dresses and tunics for men and women, and embroidered handbags in natural fabrics like raw silk and suede. There are also Mexican blouses, Chinese silk bags with embroidered Mandarin characters, and backpacks adorned with straw sunflowers and black beaded borders. The mishmash of all the store’s colored and printed fabrics can make shopping here a slightly dizzying experience. It’s best to wear something plain when you visit so you can try on the wild scarves and wraps without getting overwhelmed.
