The Hottest Store Openings Just in Time for Your Holiday Spending

Coach’s New L.A. Flagship

‘Tis the season to blow your bank account and we’ve got a handful of gorgeous new shops to help us do it.

1. COS

For New Yorkers who dream of being Scandinavian minimalists, the opening of the city’s first COS location is a much-awaited dream come true. For years, those in the know have stockpiled the pared back pieces even if it meant an extra baggage fee. Shoppers can now spend that extra cash on the goods themselves.

129 Spring Street, Between Greene and Wooster

2. FEIT

feit retail

More minimalism at shoe brand, FEIT’s new store. The Australian company founded by brothers Tull & Josh Price now has a home in downtown NYC. While minimal, FEIT shoes emanate a rarefied handmade, and high quality essence–we’ll call it ‘elevated minimalism’ perhaps.

2 Prince Street, Corner of Prince and Bowery

3. COACH

Up until recent years, I hadn’t thought much about Coach since my Bat Mitzvah, if we’re being honest, and lately it’s literally all I can think about — here’s looking at you, Stuart Vevers! The newest store marks Coach’s very chic new beginnings–and the space itself has the design mark of Vevers, its creative director. The Rodeo Drive flagship is the first to undergo the makeover, which was completed in mid-November, but official celebrations will commence on December 10th and 11th. And, Time Warner Center’s Manhattan location is next up.

4. SCHOTT

Schott NYC LA Center

Schott NYC is a family company now run by the 4th generation to do so, and they’ve expanded to their second retail outpost in Los Angeles at The Americana at Brand.

112 Caruso Avenue

5. DAVID YURMAN

DY Soho Interior

David Yurman makes the move downtown to SoHo for a second NYC location so downtown girls can get those signature cable bands just as easily as uptowners.

112 Prince Street

6. BURBERRY

Burberry’s new location on Rodeo is bringing a taste of London to Los Angeles thanks to its full span of all things Burberry: Prorsum, London, Brit, Accessories–and beauty even has a dedicated space (!!).

As cooler temperatures arrive, I immediately find myself hoarding sweaters as though I’ve never seen one before…there are so. many. good. ones. If I could wear all of these tomorrow, I would.

J.CREW COLLECTION STRIPED SHEARLING SWEATER

The kind of sweater your older relatives might not get, but you won’t care because you will be happily caressing your own shearling-covered self all night long.

SHOSH NYC JULIETTE SWEATER

I’m gonna go ahead and dub this the “eating all night bc IDGAF sweater” because its silhouette, when on, is a beautiful flow-y thing that widens around the midsection. Also: pockets for an added bonus, and it’s a perfect autumn hue.

ONE BY NIGHTWALKER BUNKER FUR STRIPED SWEATER 

shopbop fluff

This glorified ball of fluff will be in the mail to me by the time I publish this post. And that’s all I’ve got about that.

ACNE STUDIOS GAJA OVERSIZED SWEATER

The ways I love Acne are beyond my counting abilities and this high-fashion teenage ninja turtle sweater is no exception. And, it’s most definitely something grandma can get behind.

RYAN ROCHE OVERSIZED FISHERMAN SWEATER

One of this year’s CFDA runners-up, Ryan Roche is majorly girl-crushable. This knit, in her beloved pink hue, is 100% cashmere and hand-knit in Nepal.

RAG & BONE COWICHAN CARDIGAN

The kind of sweater you’ll wear to Thanksgiving by default because you haven’t taken it off in 10 days.

If the conversation grows tense, you can always turn the topic of conversation back to your own sweater.

For the trendy-prepster who feels nostalgic for pep rallies when visiting home.

Happy shopping Thanksgiving.

H&M’s Collection of Style Line—Sorry America, Not For You

Unfortunately for those of us stateside, H&M has debuted another collection for their premium line in Europe featuring higher quality materials and construction than you’d expect from the budget fashion house which carries of-the-moment clothing for men and women. The line, called Collection of Style (COS for short), is avant-garde and of a much more focused and neutral color palette. The men’s and women’s lines can be seen on the COS site, which makes no mention of its relation to H&M (save the fine print in the About section).

However, the looks are smart and timeless—we have our fingers crossed for the line to arrive in America soon!
