38 Orchard St., New York, NY, 10002
at Hester St.
One of my favorite boutiques in the city
By lemonadeVV on 9/2/2011
A hidden treasure sitting next to a equally hidden art gallery on Orchard Street. The interior and Visual Merchandising immediately caught my eyes when I passed by. The boutique feels like a well curated mini concept store, something that you would only expect to find in Paris or Milan. The brands they carry are discrete and product-focused; items are carefully picked and displayed that you can see there is a point of view. I would guess this boutique appeals to those with refined taste and good style.
Top notch goods

This was such an unexpected find---off the beaten path in that no-mans land between LES and Chinatown. I love the small, design details of all of the clothing here. Very subtle and often pretty funny. The staff is super helpful as well. They keep a lot of the stock tucked away in the back and will bring it out for you once they have an idea of what you like.
Excellent, eclectic selection

The clothing equivalent to the Kiosk store in Soho (with better service). The clothes here are truly unusual and beautifully made --- if you snag something here, you won't see yourself coming and going on the street, that's for sure! The non-clothes choices are equally unique: a few pieces of intriguing jewelry, notebooks, etc. I'm still kicking myself for not getting the gorgeous handcrafted still... yes, as in distilling. The staff is friendly and low-key, happy to tell the stories behind the goods.
