Brooklyn Fox

  • Price band: 3/4

In 2007, Alexis Isadora Schoenberg opened her first shop—a well-curated lingerie emporium—in Williamsburg. Schoenberg expands her repertoire to clothing and accessories with this spin-off, which shares a name with and is located just a block away from the original space. You’ll find international designers, including South Korea native Angela Bang and Australian brand Zimmermann, as well as local labels such as Holy Tee and Robert Rodriguez. Clothing is organized by style, with Mara Hoffman embroidered rompers ($225) and Edun print cropped pants ($298) appearing in the colorful bohemian section, while Alternative Apparel draped-back tees ($38) and Kill City skinny jeans ($160) round out the more casual back corner. The rear wall is made up of cube-shaped shelves displaying accessories, including Angel Jackson fringed leather bags ($575) and Licia Florio laceless oxfords ($470). Don’t miss the glass jewelry cases filled with baubles such as Bijules fingertip rings ($269–$290) and Paris House cheeky leather change purses ($78).

Crystal Design & Interiors

  • Price band: 3/4

Southern belle turned NYC businesswoman Crystal Jarrett has opened her first furniture store and interior design studio. The space looks like a sleek city apartment with splashes of fuchsia, magenta and coral. You’ll find furnishings such as Society Social sets of colorful wood tables with four matching nesting chairs ($1,190), vintage midcentury Danish chairs reupholstered in mohair (two for $4,000), and Chandi Lighting sconces ($2,999) composed of bicycle handles and chains. For decorative pieces, scoop up curvy lacquered mirrors ($500), Hermès-style drink trays ($399) and coffee-table books ($35–$85) such as Vogue Living ($85) and TheHouses of Greenwich Village ($45). If you’re unsure how to incorporate your purchase into your abode, seek out Jarrett’s decorating services (free for a one-hour consultation, $100 for each hour thereafter) in the back of the boutique.

The Hunt

  • Price band: 3/4

The name of this shop refers to its stock of carefully sourced antiques and its discreet location in the back of Lower East Side jewelry store the Great Frog. Started in 2011 by Steven Ditchkus and his partner, Jake Lamagno—a well-known skater kid and the entertainment director of Thompson LES hotel, respectively—the Hunt now has a permanent place to showcase the twisted, Americana-themed vintage housewares and furniture the pair has amassed over the past decade. The dark back room is packed with one-of-a-kind collectibles sourced mostly from New York, including a 1940s film-studio light repurposed into a lamp ($850), a taxidermy alligator head ($350) and a decorative steel skeet thrower ($375) that dates back to 1892.

James Corbett Studio

  • Price band: 2/4

After five years of being cramped in a tiny Union Square salon, James Corbett opened this luxe space offering hair ($60–$250) and nail ($25–$45) services. The space features a vibrant red door and accent walls, eight wood-and-leather cutting chairs and a sleek wood bar that stores hair color and lets clients sit and plug in a computer or cell phone (there are also outlets at every chair). Nab a haircut (men $85, women $110), highlights ($150–$250, with Corbett $200–$250), single-process color ($125, with Corbett $140) or a blowout ($60). The showcase here is the outdoor garden in the back, where you can even get your manicure ($25) and pedicure ($45). Don’t leave without checking out the large selection of organic products from brands such as Tela Beauty Organics ($28–$36), Vapour Organic Beauty ($20–$54) and locally made Priti nail polish ($13), as well as jewelry ($120–$400) from designer Keri Starker (keristarker.com), Corbett’s friend.
