Our previous stop had been at Edon Manor which was pretty much the opposite of this store. You can imagine all of the Manhattan local socialites shopping at Edon Manor and all of the trendiest of what NYC has to offer shopping at Kirna Zabete. While we were at Edon Manor it was very much a personal approach and Kirna Zabete was more on the artistic side if that makes any sense. Either way…I’ll take it!
Again, we walked into the store greeted in full VIP status with another table full of amazing treats (food gets my attention every time!). Let me stop right here because this was my favorite. Liquiteria Grasshopper and it was amazing! I left the store thinking this stuff was so fantastic and why didn’t I take a picture of the bottle so that I could order it…that good! AND good for you! Luckily one of my Polyvore peeps had the info. After I had tirelessly searched through all of our Instagrams of the event hoping someone got a picture, she then posts all the info. I was ecstatic! I finally had the contact info for this brilliant juice. To tell you quite honestly, I don’t really like juice aside from Guava juice and my occasional freshly squeezed OJ. So this was a rare that I would love it that much.
I’ll admit, until Target came out with their Kirna Zabete collection I didn’t really know much about them other than…words to self “you can’t afford it”. I just knew it was very high-end fashion. Beth Buccini was a fashion Editor at Mirabella and New York Magazine and her partner Sarah Easley worked for luxury wholesale fashion for Christian Dior and Christian Lacroix and Ines de la Fressange.
As you can imagine, all of the most prominent brands in fashion were at this store. Altuzara, Chloe, Valentino, Adam Lipps. Prubal Lurang, Duro Alarung and Givency, obviously so much more!
I was missing my daughter when I saw this book and had to have it. Of all the beautiful items in this store this is what I had to have! We will enjoy it together for years to come.
Be sure to stop by next week for the 3rd installment of this trip! xo
