His favorite NYC stores
Century 21 Locations throughout the city; visit c21stores.com
"I don't buy any denim in the United States, though I might dig it out at Century 21," says Koon. "I dress down when I go and will literally stay there eight to nine hours straight."
AllSaints Spitalfields 512 Broadway between Broome and Spring Sts (646-862-1832, us.allsaints.com)
Koon admits he thinks the British retailer is quite cool. "The clothing is very tailored," he says. "While the denim is not for me, the tops are clean and crisp."
Kinokuniya 1073 Sixth Ave between 40th and 41st Sts (212-869-1703, kinokuniya.com)
"It's my favorite bookstore in NYC," gushes Koon. "It carries my stock of [Japanese-imported] fashion magazines." He keeps a stash of glossies in his office and uses them for design inspiration.
Luk Fook Jewelry & Goldsmith 185 Canal St between Mott and Mulberry Sts (212-343-3005)
"The staff comes from Hong Kong and specializes in 24-karat gold and jade," says Koon. "When I have custom pieces I want to develop, I'll go there."
