Since 2002, this indie shop has given East Villagers a place to score high-end lingerie from brands such as Maison Close, Stella McCartney and Mimi Holliday. Owner Cindy Kahng has moved the store just around the corner, to a more spacious location. While fancy underthings are the main draw—highlights include Felina lace bras ($40) and Honeydew mesh boy shorts ($16)—there’s also a bevy of trendy clothing and accessories that allow you to throw together complete ensembles. Toss an Aryn K bat-wing-sleeve tunic ($78) over Only Hearts knit leggings ($85), then finish off the look with By Boe star-shaped post earrings ($48). If you’re looking for goods that are a bit kinkier, you’ll find Maison Close feather handcuffs ($35), the Lake & Stars crotchless panties ($85) and Damaris lace-up corset knickers ($135).
