Nolita, New York City


Sure, nothing beats an actual afternoon stroll through a great shopping neighborhood—and there's no greater district for boutiques than New York City's Nolita—but that doesn't mean you can't explore its many visual splendors from the comfort of your computer. (Hello late night, after hours shopping!) We asked Beso Contributing Editor ANNE ZIEGLER to round-up Nolita's best boutiques—which all sell their goods online.

Part coffee shop and part store, this surf-centric boutique draws a Nolita-based crowd that would much rather be at the beach. Fortunately, Saturdays Surf stocks all the accouterments for a day out at Montauk: Besides boards, you'll find swimsuits, button-down shirts, Soludos espadrilles, and all matter of graphic tees.

Styled after a kitchen-esque science institute, the tiny, Nolita-based Le Labo offers some of the most distinctive perfumes out there. Each of Le Labo fragrances are built around a primary natural essence that hails directly from Grasse, which is France's "perfume capital." Even without a scratch-and-sniff web browser, the custom built and labeled scents are a great gift.

Furnished with a modern mix of neon, lucite, and lacquer, the brand-new Thomas Sires is styled like a slick little general store.

Launched by interior decorator Nina Freudenberger, the tininess of the jewel-box like Haus Interior belies the depth of its offerings (many of which are really well-priced). There are ikat-printed pillows, gorgeously-scented candles, and all manner of flea market rescued treasures, perfect for outfitting a Nolita studio.

Supra can boast a fan base of some of the biggest names in music, entertainment and sports—and for good reason. The sneaker line is both spot-on, and rare—in fact, Nolita is home to its
only US location.

Originally out of Los Angeles, the warehouse-like Creatures of Comfort hosts 2,300 square feet of some of the most of-the-moment brands around—many of whom are difficult to find outside of this Nolita boutique. The roughly-hewn metal racks drip with avant-garde dresses from Aesa, Karen Walker, and Rachel Comey, and the shelves are dotted with Postalco notebooks and Parisian lip balms.

BLK Denim, a new arrival from Johan Lindeberg (of J. Lindeberg fame), revolves around a deeply downtown aesthetic. There are leather jackets, great knits and a major focus on denim—while the site is super-slick, if you get a chance to visit the Nolita store, make sure you linger in the back where you'll find a pretty amazing selection of books.

If we could move right into Canvas, we surely would. Not only is the 1,800 square foot store packed with ethically sourced and ecologically responsible picks, but it's all stunning. And what's better? Reasonably priced. When it comes to making any New York City apartment feel like home, this is the first stop.
