This isn’t exactly a “secret” kept by New Yorkers, but it’s definitely worth talking about!

Well, it obviously can’t be a secret when you pass in front of a store and there is a massive line that goes around the block right? That calls “a little” attention for any one passing by. Ha!

Located in SoHo, Dominique Ansel Bakery launched in November 2011. In just a few months, it received the award of the “Best New Bakery of 2012”! From that time on, the crazy, monstrous lines started!

Then, in 2013, Business Insider named Dominique as one of the “Most Innovative people Under 40”. Of course, after that he received numerous other important awards! His signature sweets are the cakes and tastes. Surely, hard to choose from!

But wait, we can’t forget about the famous and desired Cronut! It’s a mixture of Croissant with a Doughnut! Sound crazy good, right? Well, in simple terms: It. Is.

About the Cronut:

Taking 2 months and more than 10 recipes, Chef Dominique Ansel’s creation is not to be mistaken as simply croissant dough that has been fried. Made with a laminated dough which has been likened to a croissant (but uses a proprietary recipe), the Cronut® pastry is first proofed and then fried in grape seed oil at a specific temperature.

Once cooked, each Cronut® pastry is flavored in three ways: 1. rolled in sugar; 2. filled with cream; and 3. topped with glaze. The Cronut® pastries are made fresh daily, and completely done in house. The entire process takes up to 3 days.

There is only one flavor of the Cronut® pastry every month here in New York, London, and Tokyo, never repeating.

Other amazing items you might want to try at Dominique Ansel Bakery: the macarons, the homemade granola and the miniature meringues. Actually, the list is too big to write, so just be sure to try a few of what calls your attention! It’ll be hard to go wrong.

You can also order online!

Chef Ansel’s first cookbook “DOMINIQUE ANSEL: The Secret Recipes“, published by Simon & Schuster released in October of 2014.

As we all know, New York City is the place to be for the ultimate shopping experience. But, many people do not know about the secret gems hidden in town. So, this is where we come in! Marlene Wetherell vintage shop is one of these places!

Located in the Flatiron District, almost bordering Chelsea, the store is the paradise for the vintage lovers!

“Vintage fashion, at least for me, has always been about fantasy: the fantasy of the vintage pieces themselves; the fantasy of designers and design houses; and the fantasy of their historical and cultural manifestations in cinema, society, theater, literature, music, and photography.”

“I opened Marlene Wetherell Vintage fashion in the early 2000s in Chelsea, New York City. The goal was to present rare, yet wearable designer pieces — a curated selection that would always feel exceptionally at home in the present.

You’ll be able to find amazing pieces by renowned brands like Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Céline and countless other fantastic names!

The items are carefully cared for and in very good shape!

You can also be lucky enough to bump into Marlene!

She has obviously a great taste for fashion and is super polite. Plus, she’ll select some of the most amazing pieces you would never expect to fall so deeply in love with! She’s great and seeing what will work best for a client!

I love seeing the ways my clients find value in these pieces. Whether they’re wearing them in their daily lives, styling them in shoots, or using them as inspiration for one of their own designs.”

A vintage shopping tip: Don’t go out from head to toe in Vintage! Mix it with something modern and that will do the twist!

If you’re a vintage lover, take a look at these top Brooklyn vintage stores and a very unique vintage jewelry spot!

UNFORTUNATELY THEY CLOSED THEIR NYC STORE, BUT SELL ONLINE!

In the end of 2014 the city received a gift! Ernest Alexander opened his design shop for the public, in Lower Midtown.

The current flagship store, in SoHo, works exclusively with ready-to-wear menswear and accessories.

Going back in time:

The brand exists for over 5 years now and Earnest started from the desire of creating the perfect men’s messenger bag.

The idea was to create a messenger bag with “clean lines, functionality, traditional materials blended with a slightly modern aesthetic, something durable and good-looking”.

It took time, work and long exhausting hours of planning and testing, but around a year later, voilá! The Hudson Messenger was born!

One of the most special aspects in the brand is the choice of manufacturing everything around the New York City area and supporting NYC’s Garment District. There they offer the possibility for new designers to challenge their ideas and start their own clothing lines!

Cool right? We just love it!

Well, Ernest took another big step in 2014 opening his Design Store for the public to get a glimpse of their amazing work.

Ernest explained to WWD:

“I want people to walk into my showroom store and get the full experience of the brand. From seeing all we have to offer in accessories and ready-to-wear, customers will also get the opportunity to see where I work and where I get my inspirations.”

The Ernest Alexander: Design Shop opens by appointment only.  You can schedule Tuesdays through Thursdays and for walk-ins on Friday.

If you are not the type that is excited to shop and you just want to get things done, you might want to consider consulting our private Personal Shopping services.

Our experts pre select everything before hand, based on your style and budget. So, when you arrive at the store(s), it’s pretty seamless and painless.

Come explore the more unique menswear in NYC.
