As a discovery platform that celebrates, creates and cultivates fashion, there’s no better spot for our NY office than SOHO. Formerly an industrial wasteland and now—arguably—the most fashionable area in the city, our five story walk-up stands in the heart of this shopping mecca, surrounded by high street stores and commercial retailers. Though, it’s actually the one-of-a-kind boutiques intermixed amongst these shops that give SOHO its artful, unique spirit.
We’ve picked our five favorite boutiques that inspire sartorial thoughts and lure us to window displays during our soho shopping lunch breaks.
This Broome St. boutique showcases a fun, striped-floored sanctuary for fashion die-hards. Owners Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini personally pick each covetable designer product from stationary notebooks to sexy swimwear. If you’re into eclectic, high fashion pieces as much as we are, than you’ll understand our obsession with Kirna Zabete as soon as you walk in. Or maybe it’s the bright neon signs that keep us coming back, “Life is too short, buy the shoes.”
