While in New York for the last week I came across a few boutiques and designers that really inspired me and reflected my general aesthetic. First up is Assembly New York. They make great unisex style clothing and feature other amazing designers such as Raquel Allegra. I also found some over-dyed vintage pieces and unique jewelry that struck my fancy.
Next is In God We Trust. Like Assembly, they put out a house line of mens and womens clothing in addition to a jewelry collection, but feature other designers. I think the aesthetics of the stores are the most interesting element. There are three stores and each have a very rustic cabin feel to them with old wooden display pieces and collected antiques.
Lastly is Maryam Nassir Zadeh, a boutique specializing in one-of-a-kind and small run designs. Their selection is like nothing I've seen so far with a very progressive take on fashion, jewelry and art. I love the pieces they carry by Electric Feathers. My favorite find thus far.
