The new Lower East Side addition (or should I say addiction), the Blake Scotland boutique struck me with a strong urban chic vibe. Blake Scotland wanted her boutique to be a true reflection of the downtown neighborhood, with easy-to-wear and free-spirited items for the fashion forward guy and gal. The store itself is a presentation of beauty from it’s vintage, New York feel to its original brick walls and chandelier-adorned space.
The new boutique carries a variety of brands, including Australian labels Ksubi, Saint Augustine Academy and One Teaspoon. There’s a multitude of options to compliment any wardrobe with popular prints along with edgy and retro pieces. You’ll find deconstructed denim shorts along with dresses and accessories for women that can be worn on the beach and back to the streets. Blake Scotland’s passionate personality has created an atmosphere you’re not going to want to miss. Go ahead; follow the crowd and head downtown to do a little shopping.
