There's a new kid on the block, who just so happens to be the result of two seasoned fashion folks. Thomas Sires is the latest concept boutique making its mark on Elizabeth Street, and it's the brainchild of Loeffler Randall ex-pats Fiona Thomas and Allison Sires.
With their sought-after minimalist women's ready-to-wear collection of the same name taking the limelight, at Thomas Sires, it's all in the details. And while you can walk away with a luscious knit sweater (perfect for today's first official New York snowfall), you're just as likely to depart with an assemblage of curated trinkets, carefully handpicked from around the globe.
Modeled after the numerous lifestyle stores found in Europe and Japan, Fiona and Allison's endeavor is a one-stop-shop for all your luscious fashion and lifestyle needs...rather...wants. And with their doors officially open for business as of Saturday, their unique collection of goods (as well as their vibrant neon pink sign in the window) marks yet another reason our shopping lists always bring us to Nolita.—Yale Breslin
