The Assemblist Letter 38 - Hillary's Favorite NYC Shops
LOOKING TO MIX UP YOUR STYLE FOR THE REST OF THE SUMMER? YOU'RE IN LUCK! OUR CO-FOUNDER HILLARY FRANCE CURATED A FEW OF HER FAVORITE NYC SHOPS THAT SHARE OUR LOVE OF CONTEMPORARY FASHION. FROM THE LOWER EAST SIDE TO WILLIAMSBURG, CHECK OUT HILLARY'S CURRENT GO-TO STORES THAT FEATURE DESIGNERS IN THE BRAND ASSEMBLY COMMUNITY, AND MORE.
I LOVE their aesthetic and the brands that they carry. The shop has a very clean aesthetic, but avant-garde at the same time. If I could walk into a store and make it my closet, Concrete + Water would be it. They carry some of my favorite brands like: Delfina Balda, Ashley Rowe, Nikki Chasin, Illana Kohn, H Fredriksson, Samantha Pleet, and WHIT.
The two owners Olivia and Steph have selected a great "outside the lines" group of brands with also fun, kitschy items in the form of greeting cards, key chains, novelty tees, and more. Oh, and there is a coffee bar too! They carry some of my favorite brands like: Kaelen, Alice McCall, Morgan Carper, Rachel Antonoff, Saunder, TBA, and Solid & Striped.
