Don’t let the funky green and gold paint job fool you: This East Village consignment shop is no polyester palace. Loyal customers come here to cruise the racks for gently-used designer apparel from Japanese labels like Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto, as well as from industry standard-bearers like Prada, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana. Sharp-eyed shoppers quickly scoop up high-end staples and accessories in luxe materials for a fraction of the retail price but pieces from upscale denim brands like Acne and Diesel, for instance, rarely break a Benjamin. Though roughly equal space is devoted to men’s and women’s wear, many coats and basic shirts are labeled “unisex.” A warning to those who like to try before they buy: There are no mirrors inside the dressing rooms, so shopping with a trusted friend is the way to go.
