Trying to compose a list of shopping in NYC is one difficult task. That’s why we decided to limit ourselves to the Meatpacking District shopping we did on a recent trip (still a daunting task on its own since it has the likes of DVF, Stella McCartney and Theory). Here are some of our favourite stores that we would visit again, and again, and again.
Scoop describe themselves as the ultimate closet — we couldn’t agree more! It’s literally one-stop designer shopping, perfect for when you’re on a New York minute and need to catch a flight, show or dinner reservations. With names like Jimmy Choo, Theory and Citizens of Humanity, we’re sold.
To travel in style is easy — if you have a lovely selection of DVF dresses to choose from. A quick stop in her shop and you’ll see why her wrap dresses are so iconic. They fit perfectly, are super comfortable and never go out of style. That’s why when we’re in NYC, it’s a great excuse to pick up a new DVF dress.
Theory is one of those designers you just can’t go wrong with. Whether it’s a silk tank, perfectly tailored slim cut pants, or a classic trench, this Meatpacking location is ideal for picking up a last minute piece for a night out.
Ask a New Yorker where to find the latest, funky designer duds an they will likely steer you to Jeffrey. Laden with shoes, bags, accessories and clothing in a department store like design, you can drool over the new Prada bags or ask a friendly staff member to try on some stunning YSL heels.
