Little Luxuries within Walking Distance of River & Warren

8/11/2015
The choice to live at River & Warren signals an appreciation for the finer things in life. Fortunately, in addition to its convenient location and spectacular Hudson River views, River & Warren is within easy walking distance of a wealth of luxury shopping. So let’s step out, take a sophisticated stroll around the Financial District, and return with a new wardrobe.

Diane von Fürstenberg | 250 Vesey Street
You know your designer togs are in good hands when the person behind them is a former princess. Diane von Fürstenberg started creating clothes in 1970, shortly after her marriage to Prince Egon of Fürstenberg. Though the styles may have changed over the past 45 years, the quality of the DVF brand has not. Inside the store at 250 Vesey Street, you’ll find everything from a classic cocktail dress for hosting soirées at your Battery Park City condo, right through to the perfect clutch. Complete your look with flashy Valene heels and a striking geometric necklace, and then parade around Tribeca like the whole place is a catwalk.

Hermès | 200 Vesey Street
The name Hermès sends a tingle down the spine of most fashion-conscious shoppers. Head straight for the jewelry section and try on the rose gold Alchimie Hermès bracelet — something you’ll treasure for life — while directing any gentleman friend in attendance to the watch section. The Cape Cod watch with its tan leather strap would be ideal for a summer sailing expedition off coastal Maine. Before heading to the checkout, consider refreshing your fragrance collection with a bottle or two of seasonal scents. After all, fashion should smell good too.

Tiffany & Co. | 37 Wall Street
Without a doubt, Tiffany & Co. is the final word in American jewelry, and no collection is complete without at least one or two pieces from this iconic store. Add sparkle with solitaire diamond earrings in platinum, select from Tiffany’s simple yet striking pendant range, or accessorize with a unique seahorse broach studded with peridots, diamonds, and amethysts. Men are welcome to select from an array of cuff links, watches, and rings designed to please the most fastidious of customers. Remember to put on your best Audrey Hepburn as you emerge from this store with a little blue box in hand, and a smile for the world to see.

Paul Smith | 230 Vesey Street
A chic recent arrival to Battery Park City, Paul Smith effectively serves up “classics with a twist” to locals and visitors alike. In addition to sharp suits in striking hues and patterns, daringly cut dresses and the voluminous pants that are currently all the rage are sure to please shoppers. Of course, for more traditional customers, Paul Smith does design less showy options such as charcoal blazers for men and caramel trench coats for the ladies. Whichever outfit you choose from Paul Smith, it’s likely to be a talking point among your friends, which is, after all, half the point of fashion itself.
