Recognized for its vibrantly patterned, lightweight nylon totes, the accessories retailer returns home to its original Manhattan locale. (The company hawked handbags in Soho from 1993 to 2005, before nabbing a roomier spot on Madison Avenue.) This intimate downtown location sells an array of classic styles, such as floral-print weekender bags ($108) and galaxy sequined backpacks ($98). You’ll also discover selections from LeSportsac’s Artist in Residence program, which showcases a biannual rotation of international artist collaborations, including the Netherlands’ B Free and Marisabel from Panama. Look for Australian illustrator Jeremyville’s cupcake-motif snack sacks ($20) and diamond-themed wristlets ($32), which are currently on display.
