Supreme is cool when they have stock!!! You should check out Nom De Guerre whilst your there and also the shops in the Lower East Side! Eldridge, Stanton, Rivington, Orchard all have some wicked stores. There is loads of good food round there too!

H&M had a few of those leathers in small. Off to Cancun for a week in about 4 hours then back to abuse the credit card in NY for a few days. Picked up a nice BAPE camo sweatshirt, a micropacer jacket, some mesh rod levers. Think I'll pick up some BAPE footwear when I get back. Laters.

I think New York is overrated. The Meat packing (?) nights are not as wild as similar events in say, Europe where everyone is not as reserved sexually! Plus the Yank accents are a little harsh on the ears.

Also the shopping isnt as cheap as reputation suggests, anyone noticed that VAT isnt included in-store, but added later at the tills…. Evil

Retail is always looking for new concepts and, though New York is rarely the seat of creative genius, it looks like our cousins across the pond have come up with a great idea.


Just as boutiques are looking bland and department stores are getting dull, someone has finally come up with a way to market one-of-a-kind goods from young designers, without having to trudge through the rain.

Emerge*NYC, at 65 Bleeker Street, is like a luxe indoor version of Spitalfield Market - where each mini 'boutique' is complete with chandeliers, wooden floors, glass fronts et al.

Described as a modern-day bazaar for emerging designers who are keen for retail space - but not the financial responsibility of a boutique - the space consists of 26 store-in-store stalls, all selling one-off and bespoke items (everything from frocks and specs to books, accessories and art).

The brainchild of Nicholas Petrou - who also started The Market NYC on Mulberry Street, a similar concept only open on weekends - emerge has truly filled a retail gap.

True, Dover Street Market sounds similar in sentiment, but still don't think there's a shop in London, where you can mix with a host of designers, in a market(ish) atmosphere under one plush roof.

I went in November for a meeting, got utterly utterly trashed afterwards and didn't do any shopping Sad I barely made it back to JFK in time for the flight home.

What a waste. Sad

going on tuesday for xmas shopping. If anyone has been there recently, which AA and Uniqlo stores have the best stock, soho? I am determined to find the NDG store this time (spent an hour looking last time) i am aware it is next to the swatch store, that right?

Also, if anyone has been to Buddakan or Jewel Bako for a scran and has an opinion that would be great. I'm gonna do a full trip report when i get back. Hope it snows.

Yeah Swatch is on the corner of some block and NDG stairway down is just to the left of it. It's like a "caged" staircase. The NDG on the ground was pretty worn out when I was there in April Laughing out loud

Atelier is a must… CDG store etc.

I love New York, not only for shopping though, the whole atmosphere is great, the food, the sports (i like American sports) how friendly most people are. The whole easy going lifestyle is great, plus when i go i'm usually on holiday so am enjoying myself lots.
Plus i always fly British Airways from Heathrow to NY, which adds to the holiday feeling.
