Holiday Shopping, West Village Style

90 Morton | Holiday Shopping, West Village Style

With the holiday season approaching, the time for gift guides and wish lists has arrived. Amid this whirlwind of consumerism (and generosity), it’s important to take time and enjoy the shopping experience, savoring the crisp winter air and stopping for steaming mugs of coffee while walking from shop to shop. Residents of the West Village condos at 90 Morton wake up each morning just blocks from some of the finest boutiques and clothiers in the world, and the holidays are the perfect time to explore this cherished fashion district.

Less than a ten-minute walk on cobblestone streets will take residents from 90 Morton to Goorin Bros. Hat Shop, where the fourth generation of the family continues the millinery tradition begun in 1895. While their craft is ancient, their offerings are fresh: their latest collaboration with D.L. Hughley features wide brims with “handmade leather hat bands and a touch of satin lining,” bringing contemporary quality to classic styles.

Heading toward SoHo, trendy lady residents will love ANINE BING, the boutique curated by the eponymous Danish model, where edgy styles meet softer feminine touches to create a unique Scandinavian aesthetic defined by supple materials and clean lines. Stepping into ANINE BING is always a surprise, with new items added weekly, although the leather and lace aesthetic remains a constant. This is the perfect shop to drop by if someone on your list has a yearning for fine leather goods or a cutting-edge fashion sense.

Closer to home in the West Village, residents will find a monument to the neighborhood’s bohemian legacy at PERSONNEL, where local designers and creators find shelf and hanger space to display their latest wares. From clothing to jewelry to apothecary items, PERSONNEL is a one-stop shop for uniquely West Village gifts and stocking stuffers that will bring smiles to the faces of young and old alike. Plus, purchases at PERSONNEL support the West Village creative scene, an essential part of the neighborhood’s identity.

If a shopping spree for boutique clothing and handmade home goods doesn’t satisfy every item on a holiday list, 90 Morton residents are a brisk walk away from Kikkerland Design, the iconic oddities shop where form meets function in a variety of colorful products from around the world. Summarizing Kikkerland’s catalog is impossible; their staff travels the world in search of unique gadgets that bring joy to everyday tasks. From bottle openers shaped like Mexican wrestlers to nightlights shaped like slices of New York pizza, Kikkerland is the perfect place to find quirky gifts that will please the oddball in everyone’s life.

And, after a long day of shopping, what could be better than returning to a luxurious West Village home at 90 Morton and relaxing in the building’s private library? Head over to 90 Morton’s website to begin your West Village journey today!
