Le Petit Mort

Dover Street Market
Rei Kawakubo, founder of high-end streetwear label Comme des Garçons, launches the first stateside location of this designer department store (others are in London and Tokyo). The seven-story shop houses collections from more than 75 labels, including Jil Sander, Alaïa and Rick Owens. Among the extensive inventory, men will find A.P.C. crewneck sweaters ($250) and Comme des Garçons cologne ($125), while women will encounter Mykita circular-lens sunglasses ($475) and Amélie Pichard sheep-fur brogues ($820). 160 Lexington Ave at 30th St (646-837-7750, Mon–Sat 11am–7pm, Sun noon–6pm.

La Petite Mort
Former fashion buyer Kara Mullins opens her first store, which hawks both vintage and contemporary threads ($20–$350), accessories ($20–$300) and shoes ($35–$200) for both sexes. The stock is heavy on items from the ’80s and ’90s—an era that’s also reflected in the shop’s decor, velvet seating and impressive collection of old-school Playboy magazines ($10–$35). Most pieces are one-of-a-kind, such as a Gap denim jacket adorned with band patches and a hand-painted Aerosmith logo ($250). You’ll also find collectible ’90s Wu-Tang Clan tees ($250) and GroundScore NYC contemporary rings ($56) emblazoned with words such as "Brooklyn," "whiskey" and "hot mess."

Every item from the house label’s assortment of cosmetics ($15–$49), perfumes ($35–$75) and home products ($10–$35) has a unique sensory purpose: The uplifting Laughing Buddha collection ($15–$25) is scented with yuzu and mandarin, while the men’s Tatsu range ($15–$22) is infused with bamboo and mint to energize. Also look for cedar-and-orange reed home-fragrance diffusers ($35), revitalizing eucalyptus-and-rosemary hand wash ($15) and ayurvedic rose-and-almond body oils ($25). Mention TONY for 20 percent off all purchases through January 31. 231 Lafayette St at Spring St (212-966-7100, Daily 10am–10pm.

Rouge New York
Actor Stephanie March and makeup artist Rebecca Perkins, who bonded on the set of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, aim to make professional cosmetic application as accessible as a blowout or a manicure with the opening of this six-chair salon. Take a seat in front of a Hollywood-bulb mirror and sip a gratis Campari-and-soda cocktail as you flip through the digital look book on an iPad. There are three main offerings, which increase in length and intensity: the fresh-faced You…Only Better (30mins $50), the statement-making Bold Choice (40mins $60) and the red-carpet–ready Total Polish (45mins $75). Each look is executed using products handpicked and—in the case of the house-label brow tints ($18), primers ($20), concealers ($19–$26), blushes ($18) and bronzers ($21)—developed by Perkins, including Julie Hewett lipsticks ($24) and Face Stockholm foundations ($36–$48). Although everything utilized during your appointment is available for purchase, there’s no pressure to buy (you can even bring your own essentials to have incorporated into your service). Other chairside treatments include facial waxing ($15–$20), tattoo coverage ($15) and individual lash applications ($15). 130 Thompson St between W Houston and Prince Sts (212-388-1717, Mon–Fri 7am–8pm, Sat 9am–8pm, Sun 10am–7pm.
