Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Though lingerie designer Deborah Marquit’s incredibly sexy unmentionables are sold at stores like Barneys, you’ll want to make a special trip to her quirky boutique, which doubles as a design studio where she hand-dyes, cuts and sews every piece. Not only will you get to see a genius at work (Singer sewing machines and mannequins share space with the racks of merchandise), Marquit will personally fit you to make sure her bikini briefs ($75–$115), thongs ($5–$85), boy shorts ($95–$115), garter belts (lace $115, vinyl $185) and bras ($165–$225)—up to size 38D—adhere to every curve. The creations come in flashy fluorescent neon, jacquard daisy-print, and black vinyl, yet somehow she manages to make even the most extreme colors and fabrics look classy and tasteful.
