When Stephanie Pappas closed down her Mulberry Street boutique, Eva New York, in August of last year, she thought it was the end of her retail days. But after a few weeks of vacation, Pappas realized she missed scouting and supporting emerging designers. So she set out to find a new space: EVA New York (part 2) — a former deli on Bowery — threw its doors open on March 1. Designed to complement her minimalist aesthetic, the boutique is modern and sleek, with black lacquered floors and stark white walls. It also doubles as an art gallery, currently showcasing photographs by Cecilia Jurado, with plans to rotate artists in months to come. The stock is similar to the old space, with an emphasis on avant-garde and independent designers. Billowy graphic print dresses by C. Neeon and oversize, fringed scarves by Henrik Vibskov hang beside playful organic-cotton separates by Samantha Pleet and tailored staples from Rodebjer. EVA also carries downtown favorites such as jewelry by Pamela Love and denim by Burfitt. Exclusive to the store are necklaces by Saltalamacchia, a line co-designed by owner Pappas, which mixes hanging chains with yarn and horsehair to create unique statement pieces. The prices aren't the most recession-friendly, but if you're saving up for something, you just may find it here. Click ahead to see some of our favorite finds.
