Gant Rugger

  • Price band: 3/4

This modern, preppy menswear brand (a vintage-inspired label under the Gant company) gets its first Brooklyn store. Creative director Christopher Bastin designs the line based on Gant archives that date back to 1949, using re-created fabrics and silhouettes. The 1,300-square-foot brick-and-steel space is based on the brasserie design of the Gant Rugger shop in Paris, and houses the youthful collection of clothing ($50–$695) and accessories ($32–$395). A fridge is stocked with gratis beer for customers, while a working sink, cooktop and stove at the center of the store doubles as a cashier area. The table—as well as the 600-square-foot backyard—will be used for events and tastings with food and drink collaborators, including the Brooklyn Salsa Company and the Kings County Distillery. Pick up salsa ($13) and cookbooks ($25) in addition to canvas chinos ($165) in six colors, rose-print pocket squares ($65) and sweatshirts emblazoned with the word "luxé" ($160). 115 North 6th St at Berry St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-302-1949, gant.com). Mon–Sat 11am–8pm, Sun 11am–7pm.

Juniper Ridge pop-up

  • Price band: 3/4

In 1998, avid hiker Hall Newbegin launched this fragrance company in an attempt to capture the clean, simple scents he’d come across while trekking through California. Since the brand’s inception, its method has remained the same: All ingredients—such as black sage, pine needles and bark—are foraged, pressed and bottled in small batches. A first for the company, this temporary shop is designed by Californian Claudio Martonffy (claudiomartonffy.com), who adorned it with real wildflowers, plants and trees flown in from the West Coast. A video installation plays footage from Newbegin’s hiking trips, giving shoppers a look into the origins of the unisex soaps ($35), room sprays ($65) and colognes ($100–$135). Top picks include cedar-infused Yuba River room sprays ($65), olive-oil–based Inyo Trail body washes ($35) and sage-and-pine-sap Caruthers Canyon cologne ($122). 101 North 8th St between Berry St and Wythe Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-522-4959, juniperridge.com). Mon–Fri noon–8pm; Sat, Sun 10am–6pm. Through Dec 21.

Kara Ross

  • Price band: 4/4

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of her accessories label, designer Kara Ross opens her first brick-and-mortar store (her designs have been sold at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus since the brand launched). You’ll be spending a pretty penny on statement jewelry ($2,800–$10,000) and exotic-skin handbags ($500–$10,000), but her popular baubles incorporate unique materials such as lava and pearls. Highlights include raw rose-quartz and diamond rings set in gold ($12,500), lizard-skin envelope clutches ($1,140) and delicate gold bangles with mosaic stones ($3,750). 655 Madison Ave between 60th and 61st Sts (212-755-8100, kararossny.com). Mon–Wed 10:30am–8pm, Thu–Sat 10:30am-9pm, Sun noon–7pm.

Michael Bastian pop-up

  • Price band: 3/4

This New York designer’s modern menswear has been sold in Barneys New York and Bergdorf Goodman for the past 13 seasons, and Bastian is finally opening a store to call his own—at least temporarily. The space is part of BOFFO (boffo-ny.org), a nonprofit building organization geared toward supporting the arts with collaborations between established and emerging designers. The store is built within a pile of hay, and evokes an eerie, New England gothic vibe with dark displays and wax walls. Stylish guys will find the full collection of clothing ($145–$1,375) and accessories ($120–$995), including camo-print sweaters ($675), military jackets ($995) and bird-print T-shirts ($145). Super Pier, 15th St and Hudson River Park (347-603-6956, michaelbastiannyc.com). Mon–Sat noon–7pm, Sun noon–6pm. Through Nov 21.

Paule Ka

  • Price band: 3/4

While living in Paris in 1987, Serge Cajfinger founded this womenswear brand. Following a summertime Southampton pop-up shop, the Brazilian designer opens his first permanent U.S. store featuring his modern yet ladylike threads ($110–$2,120). A palette of mostly white, black, cream, beige and deep burgundy allows the garments’ intricate structures and tailored styles to stand out. Pick up wool-and-mohair skirts ($740), crepe-back satin dresses ($1,225) and wool-and-cotton coats ($1,125). 723 Madison Ave between 63rd and 64th Sts (pauleka.com). Mon–Sat 10am–7pm, Sun noon–6pm.

As an homage to its California roots, the space uses warm lighting, natural-wood fixtures, and a wall of live plants to display the laid-back clothing ($38–$298) and accessories ($8–$48). Stop in for essentials, including colorblock pullovers ($158), soft tees ($78) and leopard-print sweatshirts ($98). 142 Court St at Pacific St, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn (718-694-2101, splendid.com).

  • Price band: 2/4

Nike fans will want to head to this temporary shop to create customized hats ($25–$40), tees ($30) and the brand’s iconic Air Force 1 sneakers ($90–$150).

Most items can be taken home within the hour, although more complex designs take longer to complete. 340 Canal St at Church St (646-756-4388, nike.com). Daily 11am–7pm. Through Dec 21.
