Guide to Shopping in New York – Part 2

By Butterboom Writers  /  March 4, 2011

Part 2 of our guide to shopping in New York. Last week, we covered 5 must-see NYC shops and this week we’re rounding out our guide with another 5 handpicked boutiques from the Big Apple just for you. Check them out on your next trip to the city that never sleeps. If they can make it there, they can make it anywhere!


Perhaps THE best shoe collection in NYC (and that’s saying something), this swanky department store slash boutique is carefully edited and chosen by the owner, Jeffrey. A cool selection of some of the biggest and best designer brands in town.

449 W. 14th Street – +1 212 206 1272

Kiki de Montparnasse

Supremely sexy lingerie for the fashionista who knows that looking good starts with gorgeous underwear – perhaps even more exclusive than Agent Provocateur!

79 Greene Street – +1 212 965 8150

Kirna Zabete

Come here for your high-end couture and accessories. This shop showcases carefully edited and supremely stylish collections from Sarah and Beth whom the former worked with the likes of Christian Dior and the latter was a fashion editor at some of New York’s glossiest mags. It’s a one-stop-shop for style, from dresses to shoes, bags and accessories and even books and candles.

96 Greene Street – +1 212 941 9656

Rent the Runway

No-one wants to be seen at glamorous evening soirées, weddings, events and cocktail parties in the same dress which is why we love Rent the Runway. With a gorgeous selection of gowns and evening dresses by designers such as Hérve Léger, Vera Wang and Calvin Klein, there’s absolutely no reason not to look a million dollars each and every night. Book in advance and your dress will be delivered on the date of your choice and they’re easily retuned by post.

SEVEN New York

One of the most forward-thinking fashion communes where independent fashion designers come together to create in a single retail space, SEVEN New York is a treasure trove of both new and more established talent.

110 Mercer Street – +1 646 654 0156
