The queen of the wrap dress continues her reign of supremacy with painfully cute prints that are must-haves for every fashion gal. Splurge on everything from silk blouses, ’70s inspired jumpsuits and an array of cute clutches.
Though Diane von Furstenberg was made famous for the eternally hip wrap-dress (she sold five million of ’em in the ’70s), her line has branched out to include well-cut blouses, work pants and a fine jewelry collaboration with H. Stern. You’ll still find a host of gorgeous prints on the same incredibly flattering signature dress, too.
What to buy
This NYC designer has had a cult following since she started her eponymous line 14 years ago, and as of June 2014, Rachel Comey’s followers finally have a place to flock to. At her Soho flagship—Comey’s first brick-and-mortar happens to be next to her apartment—you’ll find the complete collection of vintage-inspired women’s clothing (dresses start at $299). The shoes, arguably her most popular offerings, take center stage on a lengthy concrete platform located under a skylight in the middle of the shop.
Where to see
The beloved high-end boutique is now bigger and better than ever, thanks to this 10,000-square-foot space just one block from its former Soho location. Founders and longtime friends Beth Buccini and Sarah Easley offer an edited collection of the most coveted designer ready-to-wear clothing ($80–$5,785) and accessories ($50–$5,200). Staying true to their aesthetic, the space features black-and-white striped hardwood floors with fuchsia Corinthian columns alongside neon signs displaying quirky mantras such as life is short, buy the shoes.
What to wear
Ladies will be pleased to find a selection of more than 25 labels that are new to the store, including Valentino, Nina Ricci and Roland Mouret. Check out Thakoon Addition floral-print dresses ($230), 3.1 Phillip Lim leopard-print skirts ($158) and Christopher Kane graphic tees ($230). Accessorize with Nessa Ayzee Kay rubber bracelets ($196), Victoria Beckham mini totes ($2,450) and Charlotte Olympia Eiffel Tower–adorned sandals ($398).
