Brit Ted Baker is known for his colorful men’s line, but he’s also designed quirky womenswear for a few years—it’s just been hard to find in New York. Now Ted Baker London (107 Grand St., at Mercer St.; 212-343-8989) has opened a separate boutique space devoted to the complete women’s collection. For fall, look out for seventies boho styles like tiered peasant skirts, wide-leg trousers, and kimono-esque jackets.
It’s hard to believe that Oakley has never had its own New York store. The sporty sunglass brand finally opens in Soho (113 Prince St., nr. Greene St.; 212-673-7700), and alongside the shades (which now come with built-in MP3 players, for $495), there are surprisingly stylish clothes and accessories.
Foodies who usually shop for kitchen appliances and gizmos on Sur La Table’s Website can now visit the new Soho store (75 Spring St., at Crosby St.; 212-966-3375), which carries top brands Dualit, DeLonghi, and KitchenAid.
Also: Clothier Bklyn is filled with premium denim lines like Frankie B., Chip & Pepper, and Joe’s (44 Fifth Ave., nr. Dean St., Park Slope, Brooklyn; 718-623-2444). Le Petit Spa has gone co-ed with its second location (900 Second Ave., at 48th St.; 212-644-9525), which has a men’s treatment room. And J’Adore Day Spa (179 Madison Ave., nr. 34th St.; 212-684-1166) offers inexpensive spa treatments (bikini wax is $17).
