Summer Style: Your Go-To Stores on the LES

Back to List

The Lower East Side remains one of the most colorful and unique areas of Manhattan. From Dimes Square to Chinatown, the LES is home to the tastiest restaurants and coolest stores. This area is where all the hippest New Yorkers hang out, relax, and have fun. If you’re looking for a perfect day, throw on a cute outfit, grab an iced beverage, and stroll the streets of the LES.

Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best spots you’ll regret missing, take our word for it.

Lara Koleji

Perhaps the chicest vintage clothing store in all of New York, Lara Koleji’s spot is truly a miracle and an enigma. Here, you can discover the most eclectic and hardest to find vintage Prada, Miu Miu, Vivienne Westwood, and more.

Maryam Nassir Zadeh

A uniquely curated selection of high quality clothes, jewelry, and home goods from one of the chicest designers of our time.

James Veloria

Colorful and kitsch is the name of the game at James Veloria where partners Collin James and Brandon Veloria sell the most forward-thinking fashion to ever hit the runway.

Procell is a staple in New York’s lower Manhattan vintage scene. Here you’ll find hard to find sportswear and designer threads. Plus, you might run into a celeb or two.

Desert Vintage

Desert stocks classy clothes for people with straight sass and impeccable style. The vintage selection specializes in pieces from the turn of the century through to the ’60s. 

Sandy Liang

Sandy’s clothes are known for their girlish, Downtown New York charm. If you want to fit in on the LES, you’ll want to buy a pleated skirt and pink hair bow here.

Landline Vintage

At Landline you will find a small—and utterly perfect—selection of irresistible designer clothing from the early aughts. Whether that’s ruffled skirts from Dolce and Gabanna to Miss Sixty jeans, this hidden gem is not one you want to miss.

Seven Wonders Collective

Lucky for us, Seven Wonders Collective crossed the bridge last year and joined the roster of LES staples. The store, which features several different vintage vendors, is a must visit.

Susan Alexandra

Susan may have become famous for her incredible beaded bag creations, but she also sells a range of artful jewelry, home goods, and clothing you won’t want to miss. This is one of the most striking, creative stores in all of New York.
