disposable shoes :( – the clothes are cool but i bought shoes there and they literally fell apart within like three times of wearing them. they were opening ceremony brand. i guess the rest of it though is good, but like.. come on. i didn't pay $200 for a disposal pair of shoes. and that's just about the cheapest thing there, but still. not cool. in their defense, though, i haven't tried to return them yet. maybe they'd take them back idk.
Coolest clothes in town – many of the labels, including many foreign ones, that they carry at this store you can't find elsewhere in the city. The owner has great taste.
Indie Central – This is a really great place is you are looking for clothes that you can't get anywhere else. I definitely would go ahead and cut out The Co-op and just come here if you are looking to step up your game. I wouldn't come here looking for a bargain but then again you get what you pay for.
indie? – I went here but I usually shop the one in LA . I was told they had indie beauty products but I couldnt find what I was looking for. I hope I didnt confuse it with another nyc indie store, anybody know what they carry now as indie beauty products?
The Pinnacle of Street Threads – Come here for truly unique cutting edge clothing. Many of the items they carry are unique to them and if not hard if not impossible to find, I purchased a Nike Tech Pack jacket that can't be bought anywhere else, not even Nike (I tried). The help is very friendly however I recommend consulting them on sizes unless they have a clear unstanding of your style or what you are looking for.
Are you kidding me? – I think it is trying too hard to be uber fashion, while most of it is just uber ugly. the idea of changing cities is cool but please offer some wearable duds.
Could they be any nicer?! – Okay, I'm just going to say it... going into a place like opening ceremony might seem intimidating at first. All the fancy, pricey labels with tough to pronounce names and the chi-chi ness and all. But can I just say the staff makes any apprehension melt away instantly with their warmth and friendliness. They helped me find the perfect outfit for where I was going by pulling a bunch of cool pieces and talking me through the process. My experience there was just great last week and I can't wait to get back. GO O.C.! Okayyyyyyyy! :)
Downtown spot showcasing hip duds made by young, emerging designers from the world over. – The coolest of the indie labels for men and women are housed in this high-ceilinged, chandeliered purple space. Every year, the owners pick a region and stock 15 emerging labels from said locale. The best-sellers during the year carry over into the next, so look for hit-labels from Hong Kong, Brazil and Germany from years past. Can't miss Brits include Alexandre Herchcovitch's beautifully loud-printed dresses and Rachel Comey's men's dress shirts and cashmere sweater dresses. Don't forget to check out the store's eponymous label, designed by store owners Humberto Leon and Carol Lim.
BEST PLACE FOR THE MOST UNIQUE ITEMS! – i absolutely adore this place! not only i'm in love with their in-house brand - so unique and totally suits my taste, but all the other brands that they stock, especially the MOST complete Cheap Monday Jeans collection there ! the staff members are all adorable and totally fit the store image, plus they're actually very nice - never bother me when i look around but are willing to help when i ask for it, perfect for me because i like shopping alone. some people might be bothered that they're left alone if they don't speak up, but i personally prefer to shop that way. knowing how the clothes wear (if it stretches, what size i should get if i'm in between size, etc) is also a huge plus. the manager is also all smiles and whenever i come in or leave the place.
Best boutique – This store is amazing. Cool, independent labels for men and women. For the ladies they have Topshop, which nobody else has. Plus they have Cheap Monday and their own house label. I always thought the staff was pretty friendly, I don't know what the previous reviewer's problem was. If you can't find what you want at this store then your style is severely lacking. SNAP!
