In tune with today’s eco-chic trends, fashion continues to go green at this Greenpoint hot spot, opened by designer John-Michael Schlotter. Made from organic and sustainable fabrics, the one-size-fits-most apparel is described by Schlotter as “more hip than hippie,” and we concur. His unisex Artists & Revolutionaries line is the main attraction—an assortment of repurposed flannel shirts ($85–$125) and pants ($90–$160) with a few plush washed cashmere jackets ($180–$220) thrown into the mix. Artists & Revolutionaries baby-soft knitted sweaters ($180–$220) hang alongside featherweight cowl-neck plaid shirts ($98). The Sway haute leather wallets and bags ($45–$900) were also among our favorite finds. The ambiance is a bonus: Vintage chandeliers hang from the ceiling, Japanese antiques ($600–$6,000) are situated on bulky wooden fixtures, and the smell of rosemary candles lingers in the air.
