Orelia Loves NY

Wow!!  We had a fabulous time in NYC getting inspired for our new Autumn Winter 2013 range.  Hurricane Sandy has definitely had an impact but it hasn’t dampened the New Yorkers fighting spirit. Here’s a quick guide to some AMAZING stores we came across while on our trip............enjoy!

C&L xx


Purl Soho

If you have any craft inspirations at all, this is the place to go. Full of the most beautiful colour yarns, amazing patterns, threads and fabrics we LOVE this store.  Just look at their card we picked up; isn't it the most beautiful colour combo..........

Isabel Marant

Just cannot believe the AW12 collection............lts Cowgirl cool to the max, love love love it!

Visit the store in Soho.......

Free People

Our secret crush… we have been big fans of Free people from afar for a long time after stumbling across their store in LA, imagine our delight when we found the store in NYC, just around the corner from our hotel… check out their stockings!!! This week’s craft project I think…


Soho Grand & 60 Thompson

Talking of hotels, we stayed at the much coveted Soho Grand on the corner of Grand and West Broadway … The salon is worth a visit though for a cocktail or two… Famously dubbed “SoHo’s Living Room,” however the rooms and service are not worth the price tag… check out 60 Thompson instead… we had dinner there at Kittichai on Friday night...AMAZING!


ABC Carpet & Home

This store makes Anthropologie look high street… Seriously, be prepared for a sharp intake of breath on entering the store… check out the window displays below



Our old favourite, the store in Soho is definitely the best in town, their visual merchandising is innovative and so inspiring… loved this selection of products for your Christmas table…


Other stores we loved…




Great ideas for jewellery display


And love their windows… check out their new super cool blog   


Jamin Puech


See the Jamin Puech website here



Their mission is to bring luxury to the everyday, for everyone. Check out their display on Spring Street…bath and body products to add to your Christmas wish list.. 


 And of course… don’t forget...TOPSHOP!!!


This store is a destination for all fashion lovers! One day we hope to have an Orelia stand in here just like in UK flagship stores…

Until the next time - Good bye NYC!
