Benetton: The Art of Knit pop-up

  • Price band: 2/4

Visit this international casual-wear brand’s temporary shop for multicolored basics and crisp neutral knits. The store is housed in a former mechanic’s carport, with a pair of open garage doors serving as the entrance. Cuban artist Erik Ravelo’s life-size knit dolls are scattered throughout the room in Kama Sutra–inspired positions. Ladies can try on jewel-toned open knits with detachable cowl necks ($119) and multicolor Fair Isle sweaters ($69). Gentlemen will appreciate graphic-patterned sweaters ($99) and luxe hoodies ($125). Pick up one of the chunky textured-knit totes ($69) to cart your cozy new threads home. • 212-891-0333, benetton.com/popup. Mon–Sat 11am–8pm, Sun noon–7pm.

Brian Atwood

  • Price band: 3/4

Now you don’t have to make a trip to Saks Fifth Avenue or Bergdorf Goodman to purchase Brian Atwood’s luxurious shoes, thanks to the model-turned-designer’s first stand-alone store. The 1,500-square-foot space is a shoe lover’s paradise, with multicolored strappy sandals ($1,335), thigh-high boots ($1,790) and geometric clutches ($1,795) lining the walls and tables. The store itself is as fancy as the pieces it offers, featuring Italian marble floors and mohair-velvet couches. If you can’t afford to drop a month’s rent on stilettos, the B Brian Atwood line offers budget-friendlier pieces, such as suede booties with snakeskin-print soles ($425) and studded metallic platform pumps ($395). As a bonus, an exclusive plaque printed with 655 madison avenue will adorn the soles of every pair of shoes sold here for a limited time. • 212-230-1064, brianatwood.com. Mon–Thu 10am–7pm; Fri, Sat 10am–6pm; Sun noon–5pm.
