Score 40 to 80 percent off designer threads at owner Rafi Sahih’s tiny, unassuming store. New merchandise, sourced from Sahih’s connections with European buyers, arrives weekly. We recently spotted Balenciaga silk tie-front dresses ($299) and Marni floral shift styles ($169). A collection of handbags and accessories revealed a Botkier leather buckle-and-zipper–detailed shoulder bag ($119), Bottega Veneta woven-leather wallets ($399) and Missoni print umbrellas ($109). The back walls of the shop stock quality kicks for women ($95–$450) and men ($82–$349). Top picks for gals include Stella McCartney mesh neon flats ($142), Dries Van Noten strappy metallic leather sandals ($170) and Tory Burch two-tone braided sandals ($95). The men’s department offers casual and dress shoes, including Cole Haan leather-and-linen loafers ($289), Dolce & Gabbana patent-leather tuxedo shoes ($289) and Magnanni suede driving slip-ons ($149). Blokes would be wise to check out the David Chu tweed sports coats ($169), Valentino two-piece suits ($399) and Hickey Freeman cotton tees ($49).
