As one of New York City’s most well-known neighborhoods, SoHo (an acronym for “South of Houston”) is an iconic area of downtown known primarily for its art scene, trendiness, and upscale boutiques. Here, fashion-forward stores framed by gorgeous architecture and landmarked buildings await shopaholics. Don’t forget to “look up” and take in the eclectic vibe of the area while you enjoy a full day of SoHo shopping.
Birchbox SoHo, 433 W Broadway
Every beauty guru is familiar with Birchbox – a monthly subscription of goodies shipped right to your door. So, if you love hair, skin, makeup products, and everything in-between, a trip to the Birchbox flagship store in SoHo is a must. There’s even a “build your own Birchbox” section, where you can handpick and fill a box of all your beauty favorites.
Maiyet, 16 Crosby St
Chic, minimal and contemporary, Maiyet is a high-end boutique that stocks great-looking investment pieces, from wardrobe basics to eveningwear. In fall, Maiyet is the place to go for the perfect cashmere sweater, leather shopping tote, and full-length duster coat to get you through the season.
Blue In Green, 8 Greene St
When it comes to the stylish men out there, Blue In Green is one of the best SoHo shopping spots for a wardrobe refresher. This retailer offers a large variety of Japanese brands, casual pieces, and custom-made jeans.
MoMA Design Store, 81 Spring St A
If you’ve ever been inspired by the Museum of Modern Art, pop into the MarieBelle during your SoHo shopping day and recreate that same aesthetic in your apartment. There are tons of unique décor items, housewares, and gifts to peruse, and a large hardcover art book from the MoMA collection never fails to make a coffee table look extra swanky.
The Laundress, 199 Prince St
Who knew laundry detergent could be so stylish? While laundry day isn’t the most exciting event in a New Yorker’s schedule, The Laundress line of luxury fabric care products makes a mundane chore seem more tolerable, at the very least. For starters, try the Signature Detergent, Fabric Conditioner Classic, and No. 10 Fabric Fresh. If your apartment building doesn’t have a laundry room, be careful not to leave your Laundress bottles lying around at the laundromat. Someone’s bound to snatch them up.
MarieBelle, 484 Broome St
Chocolate always makes a great gift, whether it’s for a friend or an indulgent post-SoHo shopping spree treat for yourself. At MarieBelle, chocolate lovers will adore the brand’s handmade bonbons and ridiculously adorable packaging. Check out the MarieBelle Library – a whimsical boxed book set made from different flavors of chocolate – for an extra special present.
