Crew Cuts Opens on Prince Street


It’s hard to find children’s clothes these days that aren’t frilly, designer, or hipster. At J.Crew’s new kids’ store, Crew Cuts (99 Prince St., nr. Greene St.; 212-966-2739), the label’s signature prepster gear is shrunken for children, and the classics become even cuter in small versions. Parents can dress their tots (ages 2 to 8) as mini-grown-ups in herringbone blazers ($138), wool jumpers ($65), and metallic ballet flats ($78).

Orchard Street, rapidly becoming as boutique-filled as its Nolita neighbors to the West, has everything from estate jewelry at Doyle & Doyle to the ubiquitous basics of American Apparel. Now Valley, a new multi-brand boutique, has arrived (48 Orchard St., nr. Hester St.; 212-274-8984). It has 2,500 square feet of the kind of edgy labels one expects to find in this neighborhood: Grey Ant, Borne, and Sass & Bide. It’s also an energy saver; there’s a waxing and nail station inside the store,

Other noteworthy openings: Colorful Dutch women and children’s label Oilily has moved downtown with a new shop that’s triple the size of its Upper East Side store (465 W. Broadway, nr. Houston St.; 212-871-0201). Renew has opened an ecofriendly salon and spa in Hell’s Kitchen (368 W. 46th St., at Ninth Ave.; 212-974-6600). Brooklyn Industries opens its third Manhattan outpost for hipster tees, hoodies, and bags perfect for lazy, dress-down weekends. (500 Hudson St., at Christopher St.; 212-206-1488).
