Window Shopping at Bergdorf Goodman

February 26th, 2015

Looking for something fun and free to do in NYC this weekend? We highly recommend strolling Fifth Avenue to witness the new and breathtaking Bergdorf Goodman window display, designed in honor of New York Fashion Week. BG commissioned installation artist Eva Petric to create a visionary “Lace Environment” in the windows of the store front.

This immaculate display is called “Personal UNiVERSEs” and consists of thousands of tiny, individual vintage lace pieces that have been combined to create large weblike environments. While the mannequins are dressed in looks from the stores new Spring 2015 collections, Petric’s lace networks serve as the backdrop and surrounding environment. These stunning windows will be on display until March 8th.

According to Petric:
“The assemblages are made out of old, given, or purchased  pieces of lace and hand works. Some I got from family and friends, and many were bought from flea markets around the world. Some were given to me by people who pulled them from storage–even out of cellars. So these pieces really represent for me the trans generational connections that tie us into worldwide webs.”

Exploring SoHo & NoLita

February 15th, 2015
Good news! Winter is almost over which means the Shop Gotham Soho Nolita Shopping Tours will begin again!

Here is a small sneak peak into a few new stores in the area that have opened up this winter:
Classic basics, Men’s and women’s clothes with a Gap/Joe fresh feel. The best part? The sale section in the back of the store
H&M sister brand opened their first US location this October in Soho. European style merchandise: apparel between $50-100, accessories ($10-50), bath/home products and features a HUGE shoe bar in the back of the store.

Small gem stone/mixed metals shop that opened up in January. The store originated in Park Slope and still have store there, but this is first NYC location. The sell a variety of men’s and women’s jewelry/gifts: “finer” jewelry (bridal collection) towards the back, less expensive bracelets, charms, keychains, temp tattoos, rings and gifts towards the front.
Very friendly, welcoming and educating staff. They are ecstatic to tell you a story for each stone-regarding it’s origin or it’s historical uses. Turf floor, books with gemstone info are scattered about and the shop girls hand out cards that describe each stone you are interested in. Floor to ceiling hand made gem stone jewelry-most pieces raining between $150-250 but there are some less expensive pieces/small gifts.
