By Whitewaller

May 2, 2018

Outside of the fairs this week, whether you’re looking for a specific item or you’re just trying to get in a little extra cardio, shopping in New York City is the way to go. Here we’ve included Whitewaller‘s favorite places to browse and buy.

Assouline
Known as a trusted luxury brand dedicated to culture, Assouline has opened the eyes and minds of many with books that are artfully crafted. With highly considered visual content, the brand has been building a passion for knowledge, culture, and travel, among an array of other topics, for over two decades. By extending its vision to create a desired library, full of lavishly illustrated books and special editions, Assouline gives readers something special to cherish beyond the bookshelf.

Creatures of Comfort
In 2005 Jade Lai founded Creatures of Comfort in L.A., and in 2010 she brought it to New York. Since then, the store stocked with unforgettable beauty, home, apparel, jewelry, swimwear, and lingerie has become an in-the-know establishment for standout labels and designers. The boutique’s focus is on highlighting luxurious materials with “minimalist modernism, a quirky practicality, and the pursuit of the playfully elegant.”
