It’s not easy setting up shop across the street from Bergdorf Goodman. But the highbrow retail concourse at the Plaza is well-edited, with pocket-size outposts from more than 25 respected labels (shirtmaker Seize Sur Vingt, jeweler Ten Thousand Things).
Favorite Find: Celebrity hair stylists Joel Warren and Edward Tricomi (who just relocated their eponymous New York salon to the hotel) handpicked the products at the Plaza Beauty, a source for cult grooming brands like the organic Greek skin-care line Sponge.
In true southern Italian style, everything at the Sirenuse is a family affair, including its boutique. Lovingly overseen by the owner’s wife, Carla Sersale, the white stucco space feels like an unfussy beach shack—albeit one that purveys coveted Italian classics (Fornasetti plates, Porselli ballet flats).
Favorite Find: Don’t miss the Sirenuse specialty, the house fragrance, cocreated by Marina Sersale, Carla’s cousin.
W Hotels was one of the first hotel groups to elevate the idea of shopping where you sleep, and this minimalist boutique in Scottsdale is no exception. The shop is meant to mirror its desert setting: ivory floors mimic shifting sands, and teal glass accents are a nod to the succulents that dot the landscape.
Favorite Finds: The merchandise is also in sync with the surroundings—from Lisa Curran bikinis for poolside lounging to cactus flower–bright satin Madison Marcus dresses to enjoy cocktails in on cool desert nights.
This exquisite bazaar is a one-stop resource for some of India’s finest handcrafts.
Favorite Finds: Head to Tijori for enameled metal boxes done in the traditional Rajasthani style. Neighboring Sunshine Alley offers up intricately woven Jamawar shawls. And then there’s an outpost of Jaipur’s Gem Palace, the 150-year-old jeweler favored by everyone from Bollywood royalty to Mick Jagger.
