ALERT // NEW HOLIDAY SHOPS AND POPS
WHO // MANSUR GAVRIEL
WHEN // Now through January 11th
WHERE // 134 WOOSTER STREET (Soho)
On Wooster Street, Mansur Gavriel has created an incredible space that matches their trademark clean aesthetic. You can browse the full collection of shoes and handbags, including some of my new favorites like the mini bucket and the mini sun bag. The accessories brand has quickly become a staple for me – the circle bag pretty much hasn’t left my side this season! More info on the pop-up here.
WHO // CUYANA
WHEN // Now through TBD
WHERE // 266 ELIZABETH STREET (Nolita)
I had the pleasure of meeting Cuyana founders Shilpa and Karla years ago while living in San Francisco (where the brand is based). I have a deep admiration for their vision, drive, and overall philosophy for the brand. Over the years it has been such a treat to watch these leaders grow their business and expand into new categories. This season we have the pleasure of having a little piece of Cuyana right here in NYC! Be sure to stop in to check out the travel cosmetics (my go-to gift) and the cashmere wrap (so beautiful in rose). More info on the pop-up here.
WHO // TORY BURCH
WHEN // Now through January
WHERE // 38-40 LITTLE WEST 12TH STREET (Meatpacking)
The Tory team has transformed their meatpacking boutique into a holiday pop-up like only the Tory team can. You will find yourself lost in the gorgeous decor, surrounded by an eclectic mix of giftable goodies. In this season’s collection, my personal favorites are the newly launched mini bag (available in 6 colors!), and the monogrammed card case, because, who doesn’t love a personalized gift?
NEW STORE OPENINGS //
MONICA VINADER: The newly opened Monica Vinader store in Soho will be the perfect home for the beautiful jewelry she creates. I fell in love with the brand after first being introduced to the Fiji Chain Bracelet. 151 Spring Street (Soho)
M.GEMI: M.Gemi creates incredibly wearable, yet beautifully crafted shoes. From my first pair I was hooked, and have been slowly accumulating more and more over the past 2 years. I mentioned their shop opening here, but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to mention it again! I have been crushing on the velvet booties in particular, but their felize is also an incredible, year-round staple. 120 Wooster Street (Soho)
JOHN HARDY: Born out of Bali in 1975, John Hardy has long been a brand I adore. Last week they opened their first NYC store location! Throughout the month of December, the store will showcase artisans to demonstrate to customers the ancient craft of chain weaving. There will be much more to come from me on this, but in the meantime, see more here! 118 Prince Street (Soho)
