Following a spate of collaborations with labels including Theory, Steven Alan and Wren, this made-in-L.A. accessories label opens its first NYC store. The designer’s handbags ($105–$699) and small leather goods ($75–$230) take center stage in the simple white boutique. Highlights include oversize clutches ($245–$275) that double as laptop cases, suede-lined iPad sleeves ($104–$110) and calf-hair totes ($429). The shop will also house a small assortment of hand-selected novelties from brands such as Annie Costello Brown, Maya Brenner and Reinhard Plank. Pick up Grace Lee leather wrap bracelets ($205) and Chateau Marmont floral and spice candles ($50). Browse the unique collection of magazines ($15–$45), including Vogue Paris, L’Officiel Hommes and Cherry Bomb, which pay homage to the designer’s roots. Monogramming is also available on most leather items for a flat fee of $50.
