In Good Hands

Chances are you’ve already sampled Aesop, the unofficial handwash of your favorite boutique hotel, cool new restaurant or interior designer’s own guest bathroom. And while fans have responded so strongly to that luxurious formula and fragrance packaged in its signature brown apothecary-style bottle, this is more than just status soap. Like the rest of the products in the Australian skincare line, the focus for Aesop has been quality above all else, sourcing the finest ingredients to address the needs of your hair, body and face. Perfumes are also available for those who can’t get enough of the intoxicating aromatic blends. The best way to experience Aesop is in one of its stores, and the newest Greenwich location proves that the brand considers its spaces as carefully as it does its product formulations. Inspired by Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi’s aesthetic, the shop features red marble, reclaimed timber shelves and a tea station to enhance each guest’s visit. Stop by for a cup and a demonstration, and we’re guessing you’ll leave with some Aesop for yourself. 346 Greenwich Ave.;

Beyond Basics

Shoppers hoping to replicate Kendall Jenner’s model off-duty look will be excited to see Aritzia has opened on Greenwich Avenue. Even if you’re not in the market for The Super Puff coat Jenner made famous on Instagram (a fashion crowd favorite for freezing weather), there are plenty of other options in store that’ll have you excited about new season staples. With a roster of twelve in-house brands, the Canadian-based boutique business that began in 1984 now has more than ninety-five locations, including five in New York alone. Its successful formula consists of a mix of on-trend pieces (outerwear has always been a standout), work-wear separates, lounge-ready essentials and easy accessories, all executed with thoughtful construction. An immersive shopping experience in modern-appointed spaces has kept customers coming back and invited newbies to discover their favorite new store. 165 Greenwich Ave.;
