While in Manhattan, John and I made a little pilgrimage to J.Crew’s latest venture, the “Liquor Store.” The brain child of Andy Spade in collaboration with the people over at J.Crew, the store inhabits a landmark Tribeca townhouse that dates back to 1825. The original wood bar now boasts everything from vintage watches to John Derian paperweights. John picked up a handsome wool driving cap and I drooled over the vintage books. In one window display sits Andy Spade’s personal straw hat collection. I tell you, the man is a genius. The mix of J.Crew’s modern collection with the historic surrounding was flawless—no detail was overlooked. I even wanted to buy the rugs off the floor!
