Shopping this wide, airy space is like walking the aisles of a pristine gallery of fantastically stylish men’s and women’s clothing, modern art and architecture books and locally-crafted contemporary furniture. The designs are breathtakingly creative, even if their prices are inaccessible to starving artists. Look for Duffer of St. George button-downs ($160), sexy Vanessa Bruno skirts ($168), and Alife sneaks ($110) to whisk you from dinner at Rodan to an avant-garde photography opening.
