Our favorite Project Runway alum has finally opened his first retail store, putting major focus on separates ($98–$400) and well-priced accessories ($50–$300). If you’re in the market for one of the designer’s glamorous frocks ($150–$2,000), you’re in luck—pieces from his latest collection, such as sheer feathered dresses ($1,500), are displayed like artwork throughout the shop. The 1,000-square-foot boutique, designed by Siriano himself, features dark tile floors, antique wooden furniture and a gallery wall adorned with photos of past seasons’ designs. In addition to the ultraluxe garb, ladies can nab household items such as Belle Fleur candles ($48) and house-label decorative animal-print pillows ($120). Accessories consist of footwear ($35–$300), including styles from his Payless collection, and faux pony-hair backpacks ($300).
