Nothing warms the heart and soul like shopping—and there’s no better place to go wild on your wardrobe than NYC. While the weather outside might be frightful, these stores are worth leaving the toasty comfort of your room at the Duane Street Hotel (for a few hours at least). Here’s where you need to shop in NYC this winter.
This women’s shoe and handbag oasis is located just an eight-minute walk from the Duane Street Hotel. Stocking brands like Givenchy and Chloe, luxury permeates the air at this relaxing retreat. The best part about Edon Manor though might be the decor. Designed by Ryan Korban, it is inspired by an English manor house—complete with flowing tufted couches, billowing curtains and of course freshly brewed tea.

If you aren’t making the trip to Tokyo anytime soon, Blue in Green has you covered. Stocking hard-to-find brands like Pure Blue Japan and Momotaro Jeans among many others, Blue in Green’s airy and carefully curated showroom is the closest you’ll get to the Japanese fashion scene without the flight. One of the coolest parts about the store is their recent addition of The Cover Nippon—a loft-like lifestyle section dedicated to showcasing the work of Japanese master artisans.

Steps from the iconic DUMBO view of the Manhattan Bridge is Front General Store. Blending modern trends like succulents and fig-scented candles, handmade in Brooklyn, with classic leather jackets and polished wingtips, Front is arguably the most exquisitely curated vintage store in the city. If you’re not careful, you could spend a whole day poring over their French, Italian and American clothing and accessories—some of which date back to the 1920’s.

The Shinola flagship store is a thing of beauty. Complete with an espresso-brewing cafe, spiral staircase and vast skylights, these Detroit watch and leather artisans know how to do retail right. Update your wrist wear with a new leather-strap chronograph, or get yourself organized with a linen journal and bridle leather cardholder. If you’re really feeling adventurous, splurge on one of their French style Porteur bicycles to explore the city in style.
