A new store has opened in Tribeca that every fashionista MUST put at the top of her shopping list. Named after co-owners Kimmy Carton’s and Jackie Brookstein’s hometown – Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania – Valley offers a compelling alternative to Soho boutiques.393 Greenwich St, New York, NY 10013
Between Beach and North Moore Streets
Mon–Sat 11am–7pm, Sun noon–6pm
The industrial white-walled space features Brooklyn-made light fixtures by Urban Chandy, which incorporates recyclable materials and low-wattage bulbs.
“It has classic Tribeca elements like reclaimed wood and brick walls, along with funky light fixtures by Brooklyn’s Urban Chandy and a mural that they commissioned from Idris, an artist whose work Kimmy discovered on a Soho sidewalk.” - Tribeca Citizen Magazine
Carton and Brookstein strike an exciting balance of known brands (like 360 Cashmere, Enza Costa and J Brand) and up-and-coming designers (Nanushka, Francis Neon leather). There are also accessories, including jewelry from Giles & Brother and Lucky Star, and Metal Skin handbags. I personally love my new black silk blouse from Calvin Rucker and my studded Jet denims!
