Mad. About Shopping
by Christina Parrella, 09/11/2013
Beyond couture clothing and sumptuous shoes, Madison Avenue provides a range of other goods. Fragrance fanatics looking for high-quality formulas and artisanal craftsmanship in the form of candles, beauty products and parfums will delight in the olfactory offerings at Diptyque. High-end jewelry spots include David Yurman, known for its collection of rope-twist textured bracelets and cocktail rings, and Graff Diamonds, which retails some of the finest and rarest gems in the world. At the only US location of Ladurée, a premier French sweets maker, sugar fiends will find macarons in a rainbow of colors as well as delicate Parisian pastries. And buyers on the hunt for chic shades should visit the Oliver Peoples boutique for a catalog of handcrafted (and high-priced) frames.
