Devotees to the clothing brand Lafayette 148 can now have a shopping experience fit for a princess. Walk into their New York City concept store at the brand's namesake address, 148 Lafayette Street, and a sales associate will take your coat so you can shop unencumbered. Ask them for extra sizes or have your size brought in from their warehouse in Brooklyn.
The shop's sun-drenched floor has the broadest selection of any of their retailers. Knowledgeable stylists will select looks based on your needs, and—depending on the time of day—there may be a light lunch or a wine-and-cheese plate prepared and waiting for you—they'll pick up lunch to help you refuel during your shopping spree. There is a large size and petite sections for those with special body types, and alternations are free—as is the car that can bring you straight to the shopping oasis. Lafayette 148's personalized experience at their downtown NYC concept store earns our vote for one of New York City's top shopping trips.
