The Observer does Stuart & Wright
What to make of Suzy Hansen's NY Observer article on the new Stuart & Wright boutique on Lafayette Avenue? Part dissertation on brownstone Brooklyn's upscale clothing boutiques and part social commentary on women who shop at these places, it was interesting in that it was written from a female point-of-view, with nary a point on what men's items they carry.
An interesting quote: "women who live in Brooklyn chose 'creative fields' over law or Wall Street. The boutiques make them regret that decision, even though they tailor themselves to the tastes of those who made it...Even freelance graphic designers deserve Diane von Furstenberg."
Another one, in regards to the high price of items: "..Brooklyn shoppers..tell themselvse that living in Brooklyn, an ostensibly money-saving venture, entitles them to some pat-on-the-back spending, a reward for having relocated to this special place."
