Meatpacking District Shops
449 W. 14th St., Meatpacking District
At this legendary boutique—an early pioneer in the Meatpacking/Chelsea area—you'll find all the big brands from Alaia to Dries van Noten to Prada, each with its own rack and an eager sales person nearby. The house DJ in his booth may be a sign of better times now past, but it's still a worthy shopping venue. (And if you're ever in Atlanta, you have to go to the original.)
Doyle & Doyle
412 W. 13th St., Meatpacking District
Helmed by two sisters, Doyle & Doyle was the first shop to make estate jewelry cool, thanks in no small part to its original outpost in the LES (they recently relocated to the Meatpacking District). Since 1998, Elizabeth and Irene have been scouring the country for exquisite pieces from every conceivable period: You'll find intricately-rendered Art Nouveau lockets, Edwardian diamond drop earrings, and a huge range of 19th century engagement rings.
