Trend watch: New York City–inspired products

Celebrate New York City like a native with these noncheesy products inspired by NYC.


CK One’s newly launched cosmetics line has partnered with Bronx graffiti artist Sharon de la Cruz—who goes by the tag name Miss 163 (unoseistres.com)—to create a six-piece makeup collection featuring shades used in her street art (the packaging is also adorned with De la Cruz’s doodles). The range includes four creamy, high-gloss lipsticks that deliver a sheer swath of shimmery color (our favorites are Punked, an orange-coral, and Tagged, a rosy pink); a powdery eye-shadow quad, whose bold colors come out softer than they appear in the circular compact; and silvery patterned adhesive nail strips that come with a mini orange stick and a petite nail file for easy application. CK One Color Cosmetics Street Edition Shine lipsticks, $16 each; powder eye-shadow quad in Vandalized, $28; and real nail polish strips in Graffiti, 16 for $14; all at Ulta, 61-35 Junction Blvd between Horace Harding Expwy and 62nd Dr, Rego Park, Queens (718-699-9004, ulta.com)


You don’t need to live in a street-facing apartment (let alone have windows) to get a view of our city’s skyline, thanks to this wall-mounted coatrack. Five building-shaped hooks drop down to support up to five pounds of jackets, scarves, umbrellas and leashes, and can be returned to their upright state when not in use for a streamlined look. Umbra Skyline multihook coat hanger, $25, at umbra.com


When local designer Phillip Lim sent a series of new york city–emblazoned T-shirts down the runway at his spring 2013 show, he made touristy garb officially cool. You won’t be ashamed to show your city pride in this luxe cotton-jersey tee, featuring floral patchwork lettering and a sexy, sheer back. 3.1 Phillip Lim New York City T-shirt, $150, at 3.1 Phillip Lim, 115 Mercer St between Prince and Spring Sts (212-334-1160, 31philliplim.com)

Drawing inspiration from the West Village’s charming cafés and stylish denizens, New Yorker Erin Farber created two new shades for her locally formulated nail-polish line: Fizzy Cucumber, a pale green that’s evocative of a minty cocktail, and Pink Panache, a rich magenta meant to capture the vibrant baubles often seen on pedestrians in the area. Both are infused with Étoile’s signature diamond dust, which acts as a nail strengthener and adds subtle sparkle and dimensionality. Étoile Greenwich St. Soirée nail polishes, $18 each, at etoilepolish.com


Female Knicks fans no longer have to settle for branded baby tees when cheering on the home team: The unique, slouchy cut of this raglan-sleeve shirt allows you to look effortlessly cool in the stadium or on the street. Sportiqe NY Knicks women’s Marshall top, $45, at sportiqe.com


In order to mark its U.S. debut last October, Spanish retailer Massimo Dutti created a capsule collection of cosmopolitan garb named after its NYC store’s address. The line proved so successful, the chain is releasing a second limited-edition assortment of clothing and accessories for both sexes (available through May 15) that reflect the Big Apple’s urban sophistication. Highlights among the neutral-toned pieces include dapper men’s blazers, blue-tinted aviators and woven hobo bags. Massimo Dutti 689 5th Avenue Collection men’s plaid blazer, $365; woven leather shoulder bag, $298; and aviator sunglasses, $90; all at Massimo Dutti, 689 Fifth Ave at 54th St (212-371-2555, massimodutti.com)
