3. MoMA Design Store

MoMA is more than a clothing store. It's a beautifully curated artistic space with trendy decor pieces, cool art, new and used books, and familiar brands.

It's one of the best places to shop for gifts you won't find in department stores - or anywhere else, for that matter.

6. The Assembly

There are two boutiques in the Assembly line - the flagship store in NYC and the LA version.

The brand leans into chic minimalist design sensibility and unisex clothing, but it also sells lesser-worn designer pieces that you won't find anywhere else.
