Known for: Hip and sweet streetwear: fancy T-shirts and rock-star jeans with some of the lowest rises in town.

What to buy: Go for the tops. Grecian draping is designer Anne Johnston's specialty, and she applies it to soft jersey T-shirts ($109$175). Also, try her knee-length skirts in basic fabrics; they're demure, but they have tough, shredded edges ($265).

Where to buy it: Martin (206 East 6th Street; 212-358-0011).
