While the address may be different, the second NYC incarnation of 25 Park, in the Meatpacking District, has much in common with its sister stores: elegance, top-notch service and a superbly edited mix of threads. And like its Upper East Side sibling, the dressing rooms are ensconced in black-and-gold brocade fabric; large mirrors trimmed in gold and silver line the walls; and glamorous chandeliers hang from the ceiling. The store is organized by color—jewel tones to neutrals—and the delicate silk and chiffon pieces are mixed in with accessories (jewelry, clutches, oversize bags and summer sandals). Owner Alison Brettschneider showcases up-and-coming indie designers—such as Leila Shams—along with established brands, to introduce the freshest fashions to her well-heeled clientele. Our favorite picks include Haute Hippie tees ($95), Elizabeth and James blazers with ruched sleeves ($395) and Blank NYC cargo pants ($78).
