Are you jetting off soon and need somewhere to kill your retail cravings? From New York to Milan, Lauren Heskin sources your retail therapy hotspots.

NEW YORK Marlow Goods

ba83ae6ed177abd1b46b92176d113d8b76e776e1

In a bid to use the discarded hide of the locally reared, grass-fed cows, sheep and pigs that they serve in their restaurants, a Brooklyn couple founded Marlow Goods, producing simple, beautifully crafted leather and wool goods. Their store features brands with a similar creative ethos, including Irish designer Petria Lenehan, in a serene edit of ethical fashion at its most covetable. marlowgoods.com.

 

LONDON Labour & Wait

homepage-carousel-image-1

This Redchurch Street store in Shoreditch (read more about this shopping oasis on page 62) heaves with crockery, utilitarian kitchen tools, sturdy storage options, books, and stationery – even clothing and cologne – each chosen for its functionality and design longevity. It’s an homage to the past without the tawdry tack;, drawing boys with beards like moths to a flame. labourandwait.co.uk

 

MILAN Wait and See

PicMonkey Collage

Spicing up the usual streamlined, utilitarian style of Milan, Wait and See is the metallic, colour-clashing, embellished, glitter-bomb brainchild of Uberta Zambeletti. The eccentric womenswear collection – global brands and vintage finds – is housed within the walls of an 18th-century former convent. Sip on a coffee and peruse the racks for that one-off piece which is sure to shine in the street-style stakes. waitandsee.it

 

PARIS Les Puces de Saint-Ouen

You’ll need to evaluate your luggage space before venturing here. The mother of all flea markets, this is no village f?te – every bargain hunter worth their antique silver salt-shakers comes from across Europe to snap up a plethora of brocantes at competitive prices. Bring your haggling A-game and be sure to throw in the matching pepper pot. Open every Saturday to Monday. marcheauxpuces-saintouen.com

 

DUBLIN Anthony Peto

Anthony Peto Gervaise - 160

Not a feathery fascinator in sight, this is millinery at its most refined. Handmade in his Paris atelier, Anthony Peto’s hats focus on simple design executed to perfection. He has been creating headwear since the early 1990s – and this, his first store outside the French capital, is on Dublin’s South Anne Street. Tr’s Charmant. anthonypeto.com
