  • Opening Ceremony
    33-35 Howard St., 212-219-2688, SoHo, Manhattan
    Chloë Sevigny, the epitome of downtown fashion, has designed tops, bottoms, eyewear and more. And Pendleton's historic and fabulous woolen mills created a series of cardigans, shirts, dresses and pants with Native American motifs that manage to be totally classic and yet completely new. These are just two of the exclusive lines carried at Opening Ceremony, where hipster cool merges with venerable brands and shopping is a course in style. The 35 Howard Street shop (which consists of a basement, a main floor and a loft) expanded to 33 Howard St., which made room for two more floors of clothes for men and women. Like Kiosk, Opening Ceremony has international cachet; it features designers from one particular country every year. In addition to its standard repertoire of impressive inventory, the store highlights fashion from Argentina this season—including designs from AY Not Dead, El Camarin and Jungle Vi.Ai.Pi. Pieces run on the expensive side, so if you like the styles but don't have enough cash on hand, look for sales on the Opening Ceremony website. While you're at the brick-and-mortar, though, don't forget to check out the mezzanine's shelf of hard-to-find fashion mags.
