FIRST LOOK: ACCESSORIZE
the uk mega-chain hits stateside.
Ever since Topshop opened its doors in New York last Spring, it was only a matter of time before the next trendy U.K. retailer would follow suit. This time around, it’s Accessorize, the British-born shop known for its “more is more” approach to bags, jewelry, and hair pieces. And since they’ve already staked their claim across the pond (with 750 stores!), their next stop is the East Coast. The debut NYC store in the West Village is stocked with everything you’d ever need to top off your look, from Celine-inspired structured purses to quirky bunny rings to chain necklaces. And with prices ranging from $8-$80, these are impulse-buy items that you don’t have to feel bad about. The shop officially opens this Friday, with first-day sales and specials that are bound to draw a major crowd. Until then, we suggest checking out the lookbook below, and start plotting your plan of attack. Accessorize, 329 Bleecker Street (at Christopher St.), New York City.
