Yes, yes, you’re trying to save money. But there’s this brand new boutique on the Bowery. And, well, somebody’s got to keep the economy afloat.
Flaunt your good credit at the 2,400-square-foot store, showroom, and design studio Eva New York.
As if flipping the market a bird, proprietor Stephanie Pappas (whose previous Mulberry Street boutique was an incubator for edgy designers) uses the lacquered and neon-lit space as an art gallery (check out Cecilia Jurado’s photo exhibition starting Sunday) and launching pad for fashion collaborations (like hat label Saltalamacchia).
Pappas also handpicks the latest and greatest from around the globe: Vivienne Westwood Anglomania (UK), Henrik Vibskov (Denmark), C.Neeon (Berlin), TV (Australia), Rodebjer (Sweden). So you can go international with one glance at the rack.
And without one cent from a bailout plan.
Eva New York, 355a Bowery, between 3rd and 4th Streets (212-925-3890 or evanewyork.net). For the next week, save 15 percent when you mention DailyCandy to the cute salesgirls. Photo exhibition opening party, March 8, 8-10 p.m.
