If you value your green credentials, Reformation is the shop for you. This environmentally sustainable fashion brand creates a unique collection out of vintage materials. Who knew recycling could look so good?
If there are too many shops for you to handle, why not book yourself a spot on the New York City shopping tour. There are exclusive shopping discounts and perks available, as well as an exclusive insight into some of NYC’s best-kept shopping secrets.
New York blog The Blonde Salad says you should hit New York Vintage. “Inside everything looks magical, and it gives you a chance to visit a different historical time period,” they say. “Here you can buy special pieces from every era, and also rent a Chanel suit, Missoni dresses and many qualities of fine vintage clothing.”
Elsewhere, head to Amarcord for Italian luxury labels. “Here you can find a touch of Italian style, with a sophisticated and very organized selection of high quality pieces like Moschino, Valentino, Pierre Cardin and Gianni Versace.”
