Women’s Wear Daily, the fashion industry news source, is reporting that Butter by Eva Gentry, on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, is launching a jewelry line. Pretty exciting, since the store is an honest-to-goodness slice of high-fashion heaven. Meanwhile, the Eva Gentry Consignment shop, on the same block, which carries designer labels at discounts of 40 percent or more was featured in this week’s L Magazine (for hipsters who ride the L train to W’Burg) as a place to go on Valentine’s Day.
I actually visited Eva Gentry Consignment for the first time recently, after my Berlin friend reminded me of it. It’s got clothes straight off the catwalk and carries Rick Owens, Prada, DKNY, Gucci, the list goes on. It’s a fun place to try things on—especially Jimmy Choo and Miu Miu boots and the like–and constitutes the first time I’ve tried on proenza schouler. After sadly passing over many pairs of pants that seemed quite a bit smaller than their printed size would suggest, I bought a navy skirt by Commes des Garcons, on clearance. What a treat. Maybe you’ll see me in it this Spring if you are lucky.
