Jeffrey Kalinsky may have established his first boutique in Atlanta, but this follow-up that landed on far West 14th Street in 1999 feels right at home in the Meatpacking District. Its simple design (save for a working fountain smack in the center) puts all the focus on the spectacular clothing and accessories, which ranges from high-end labels like Chanel and Delpozo to contemporary favorites like Alexander Wang and Kenzo.

Sure, you can find DVF dresses and accessories at lots of spots around the city — but this store is where you're most likely to see DVF the person. The designer's headquarters are located above her 14th Street store, and lots of scenes from E!'s House of DVF were filmed here.

Whitney Museum of American Art Gift Shop

Situated on the end of the High Line is the new-ish Whitney Museum, which is home to works from fantastic contemporary artists, a restaurant from Danny Meyer, and (most importantly) a killer gift shop. Head here to shop design books, personal and home accessories, and plenty of giftable items.

In a city where piles of dirty snow and ice can line the sidewalks for months on ends, having a destination to shop footwear that's both cute and functional is essential. And though Sorel's known for its furry winter boots, it's recently added sandals and outerwear to its offerings.

The Kooples

The cult French brand made its East Coast landfall here, opening in 2014 right next to Apple. It carries both men's and women's clothing (if its ads featuring real-life couples didn't already make that clear) in lots of neutral tones, brightened up by a punch of red here and there.

In Support Of is where you go in the Meatpacking District to find under-the-radar designers, many of whom are based in New York City. The boutique also has its own showroom to support these designers, and it donates a portion of sale proceeds to a different charitable cause each season (hence the name).

This clubhouse for well-dressed men (like New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist) might have its roots in Sweden, but it was so excited about its Manhattan debut that its spring/summer 2016 collection is dedicated to the city. Beyond what's visible from the street is a finished cellar level for VIP clients.

The black walls and flooring here are a sharp contrast to what's in store: dainty jewelry, including customizable charms and pendants, surrounded by fresh flowers and mannequins dressed in tutus.
