Shop-Talk Nyc: Dear: 55

While New York City undeniably has the best shopping this side of the Atlantic, one could argue that there may be too many choices, and that shopping here can be a bit overwhelming because there are is so much from high to low. And out of the thousands of options, we wanted to take a moment and start highlighting our own favorites throughout the city. Lower East Side boutique Dear: 55 may be owned by two of New York's most stylish inhabitants, and may be smartly bathed in Margiela-esque chalky white paint, but it also boasts an incredibly well-priced array of some of the cities most covetable, well designed one-offs. You can call these pieces one-offs simply because you can't find anything like what they have on offer anywhere else stateside. Owners Moon Ree & Hey Ja Do seem to have a knack for picking out pieces that feel uncompromisingly unusual, with an arty, intellectual avant-garde bent that at the same time feel effortless, breezy and still completely cool & forward.
Visit Dear: 55 located at 55 Clinton st. btwn Rivington & Stanton

Dear: 55 has moved to a bigger, bolder space on the Lower East Side's Rivington st. on the corner of Ludlow & now houses a floor devoted to collectible house-wares.
