Shop for Dutch ideas, clothes, and housewares you won't find in Gotham, though currently superhot thanks to Moss and the "Simply Droog" show at the Museum of Arts & Design (through January 14, 2007). Visit the Dutch collection's headquarters, Droog@Home, and buy prototypes and designs that haven't crossed the Atlantic, such as Red Revisited's polystyrene crockery. Also new this summer: Blend magazine's guerilla store 60daysofspace, selling lowrider bikes and Dr Denim skinny jeans. Concept store SPRMRKT's offerings range from Dior stockings and plane-motif scarves by And Beyond to art books, second-hand moose-head trophies, acid-bright leather bags, and mid-century furniture by Arne Jacobson. Denim couturier Blue Blood's first store is on P.C. Hooftstraat, Amsterdam's Madison Avenue.
