Once you ring the buzzer to Morgan Yakus and Karin Bereson’s boho-chic boutique, you’ll feel as though you’ve been invited into an impossibly stylish friend’s closet. Half European vintage, half new designs, the store specializes in statement pieces from local and international talents like Electric Feathers, Stine Goya and Henrik Vibskov. You’ll also find No. 6’s own clog and boot line ($230 to $450), bags from Wendy Nickel, and crocheted metal earrings, cuffs and necklaces from Arielle de Pinto and AESA round out the collection.
There’s more to Chinatown NYC retail than cheap jewelry emporiums and surreptitious dealers of designer knockoffs—chic boutiques are spilling over from Soho, Nolita and the Lower East Side. Purveyor of cult clogs No. 6, as well as one of our favorite avant-garde record stores Downtown Music Gallery have some of the best shopping in NYC. And once the shopping fatigue sets in, retire to one of the best bars in Chinatown or grab a bite. Check out our ranked list below!
