SHOP NEW YORK ***SPONSORED
|What’s life without accessories?|
A hot new accessories store has found a home in SoHo, so if you stumble through the shop-filled neighborhood, you might notice a new outpost dressing up Prince Street. Perhaps you’ve spotted Illesteva before –– in NYC luxury retailers like Barneys or Bergdorf Goodman. Or maybe you’ve even checked out the website, hoping that one day a store would open in Manhattan.
The good news is that Illesteva has set up its first-ever boutique. As of October 2014, fans can swoon over the NYC-based luxury accessories brand and shop in the downtown flagship.

Known mostly for its funky and fun assortment of sunnies, Illesteva has been donned by celebrities like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Lena Dunham, among others. Fashion forward New Yorkers realize that fabulous accessories can transform even the most mundane outfit.
While perusing its 500-square foot space, browse eclectic styles of high-end eyewear, and discover the recently launched collection of handbags, backpacks, and umbrellas. Put together a custom look by picking out your frame, front, side, and lenses –– you’ll have a unique pair of specs like no one else. Or select from the most popular styles like the Leonard in tortoise (one of my faves), the Frieda Marmor if you prefer round, or be bold in Ruth if you fancy stripes. Whichever pair of eyeglasses you choose, you’ll never feel so chic.

Stand out among the crowd as you stroll down West Broadway sporting the Mini Charlie Camo, the Charlie Orange, or the Mercer Pewter Leather. Look just as in vogue during wet weather when you carry an umbrella like the Black with Purple Lotus.
