MARAIS USA Marais USA has made a splash on the fashion scene since their inception. Haley Boyd and Catherine Chen, two former Parsons students, started Marais USA in order to fill a void in the market for simple, classic shoes retailing for under $100. The result is a collection of “functional, utilitarian, classic shapes that can pretty much be worn with anything from pants, to skirts, to dresses, to shorts with tights.” Recent press includes accolades from Daily Candy, Nylon Magazine, Lucky Magazine, New York Magazine and Refinery29.

LAUREN WIMMER    Lauren Wimmer graduated from Wellesley College with a joint major in sculpture and art history. Wimmer’s now 5-year-old collection is comprised of vibrantly colored ribbon-wrapped pieces paired with tactile geometric stone beads.  Her current season draws its inspiration from the dilapidated garden spaces at Satis House illustrated in Dickens’ Great Expectations.

STEM Stem owners Rado Bomba and Delgis Canahuate purvey pretty floral arrangements and fresh herbs from their storefront on South Oxford St- just blocks away from Thistle & Clover! Since opening this past June, Delgis & Rado’s quirky decor has garnered attention for being nearly as enchanting as their flowers: tree branch hooks adorn their store and flowers are tended to in a vintage 1930s sink. Their customer database is kept via antique typewriter. 112 S. Oxford St, Fort Greene, Brooklyn, 718 722 4767.

THISTLE & CLOVER        Thistle & Clover opened March 2008 in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood. Co-founders Rand Niederhoffer and Camilla Gale conceived of Thistle & Clover as a home away from home. Stacks of beautifully wrought bangles and rings sit amidst vintage books and hand pressed note cards. The clothing is carefully hand picked from an exciting group of young, up-and-coming designers that fit into Thistle & Clover’s unique and accessible aesthetic.
