Second Coming

ShareThis

Beloved vintage store Zachary’s Smile may have shuttered in March, but its former co-owner, Kristi Paras, is repurposing the West Village space as Personnel of New York (9 Greenwich Ave., nr. Christopher St.; 212-924-0604), opening May 16. The shop specializes in men’s and women’s designers from both coasts: Squiggle-striped linen dresses by New York’s Dusen Dusen ($160) hang alongside batik-print button-downs from L.A.’s Industry of All Nations ($135). Hard-to-find home goods, like a bird-shaped iron bottle opener by Japanese designer Tadanori Baba ($30), are sprinkled throughout the raw-birchwood shelves, which, in that grand Williamsburg–Silver Lake tradition, were hand-built by Paras’s art-director boyfriend and Personnel co-owner Emilio Ramirez.
