LXR & Co.
Utter the words Balenciaga, Chanel, Céline or Hermès and you’ll no doubt get the average fashionista’s pulse racing, but combine that with the term ‘up to 80% off’ and you’ll likely cause a stiletto stampede across the streets of New York. Well, this is certainly what vintage e-tailer LXR & Co. found to be the case when they opened a pop-up store for two months in Autumn 2013, so the handbag and accessory curator promptly unveiled a permanent SoHo store at the beginning of this year.
As well as the aforementioned headliners, the new store also carries a covetable stash of pre-loved, albeit mint condition, arm candy from Fendi, Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton, but what is really pulling in the label-hungry shoppers is their signature 'Birkin Bar', a stretch across the back wall which hosts a neat cache of Hermès bags starting at a reasonable US$2,499 and rocketing all the way up to a staggering US$ 26,000 for a one-of-a-kind tricolor Birkin. Or if your credit card balance isn’t up to a major splurge this month, opt for their collection of Cartier watches, jewellery and other affordable accessories for men and women, such as Ferragamo silk ties and colourful Gucci scarves. Also look out for special collabs, like February’s lineup of Louis Vuitton trunks and Chanel bags hand-painted by artist Mike Frederiqo. Chic!
