Brooklyn – Boerum Hill


86 Hoyt St between Atlantic Ave and State St

Time Out NY Owner Alayne Patrick works with Indian craftsmen to dream up the exquisite offerings at her jewel-box--like boutique. Its white walls and dark-wood floors are a low-key showcase for Patrick's vibrantly hued, hand-picked treasures from South Asia. Pick from hand-block-printed clothing ($60--$265), antique jewelry ($100--$12,000), and boldly patterned towels ($5--$48). While pieces can be a bit pricey--Layla also offers posh loot such as Virginia Johnson scarves and model-turned-designer Alek Wek's bags-- $3 glass bangles ensure that a trip here won't cost as much as a flight to Mumbai.
