Summer shopping in NYC: Five new pop-up shops to visit ASAP
From artist-designed canvas kicks to luxe French leather goods, upgrade your shopping routine by visiting these temporary stores
Tue May 13 2014
In addition to taking advantage of outdoor shopping markets, another one of our favorite summer shopping activities entails browsing New York's many pop-up boutiques. Here are a few worth checking out this season:
This shoe line, launched by two world-traveling strangers who met in Argentina in 2011, celebrates self-expression and art though its vibrant footwear. Look for an eclectic mix of limited-edition canvas shoes designed by more than 50 artists from over 20 countries around the world. The space also hosts interactive art workshops, live-art installations and original artwork by BucketFeet artists. 108 Wooster St between Prince and Spring Sts. Through July 31.
Moynat, one of the oldest trunk makers in France, pops up inside trendy Dover Street Market to offer fashionistas a luxe-life taste of classic French style. Established in 1849, the brand is known for its high-quality leather trunks—but its line has expanded to include a few sleek, modern handbags available only at this temporary outpost. Dover Street Market, 160 Lexington Ave between 30th and 31st Sts. Through June 22.
Summer pop-up at the Roger Smith Hotel
Keep coming back to this midtown venue for a rotating list of appealing designers. Favorites available now include indie label Sharmbaa (through May 31) and French designer Catherine Malandrino (through June 17). The Roger Smith Hotel, 501 Lexington Ave between 47th and 48th Sts. Ongoing.

Esquire is hosting an invite-only party on May 16, but starting the following day (May 17), stylish Gothamites can drop by to pick up suave pieces by an exclusive group of brands and designers "you oughta know," as modestly phrased on the event's website (sharp-event.com). 82 Mercer St between Broome and Spring Sts. May 17, 18.
Aloha Superette at SpaceNinety8
Designer Jennifer Binney knows a lot about tropical style, and here you'll find the Hawaii native's vibrant Aloha Superette accessories printed with idyllic beach scenes and sunsets galore.
