New York is one of the fashion capitals of the world, and shopping is a real art of consumption. Here is the information about the main points on the map of the city, where the most desperate shopaholics will find everything their hearts desire — from the chic boutiques of famous brands to small shops with the works of young designers.
No other shop does not represent New York better, than the legendary flagship store of Saks Fifth Avenue — the most visited store in the city. The shop is thematically divided into floor-areas (beauty, women’s clothing, men’s, lifestyle, etc.), in addition to brands, the best selection of shoes and clothing from American designers is available at affordable prices. Men’s clothing is considered as the best in the city. Individual attention deserves the Beauty Department-where one can find rare and new brands including Laura Mercier, Kiehl’s, Byredo, etc.
All important shops of the city are located, of course, on Manhattan and Broadway. In the area of the famous 5th Avenue and W34th, giants such as Bloomingdale’s, Saks, and Macy’s are settled.
Macy’s is one of the world’s largest Department stores. Its size is really amazing, because during the holidays it hosts not only exhibitions, but even the whole parade. At Macy’s one can buy everything from cosmetics to interior. Foreign visitors after showing the passport are entitled to 10% discount on purchases and are offered a free “personal shopper”.
On 3rd Avenue, near 59th street, Bloomingdale’s Department store is located, which was founded by brothers Bloomingdale in 1861. Range: clothing, products for the home including kitchenware and furniture. The main “trick” of the department store is the off-season sales, which once increased its popularity.
Those, who are ready to spend much money, can go straight to Bergdorf Goodman. People say that there fashion becomes a modern art. Among the products in this department store are clothing and shoes from the latest collections of leading designers, vintage jewelry, and jewelry haute couture. By the way, shop-windows of Bergdorf Goodman are the most beautiful in the city and sometimes resemble art objects.
On Madison Avenue single-brand shops of famous brands like Christian Louboutin, Dolce&Gabbana, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Ralph Lauren, Chanel, Hermes and many others are located.
