Oceana Rain

Perfect lighting, symmetrical displays, and muted colors make everything in this shop appear fancier than it is. The store is edited eclectically and carries standbys next to up-and-comers, and nostalgic band T-shirts serve as a perfect foil for more elegant blazers by DVF. Bonus: The staff offers services at almost the personal-shopping level.

Citizen:Citizen

This is a store-cum-gallery unlike anything we've seen in the city. Instead of overflowing with merchandise, the space feels curated, with unusual items such as a cheeky bronze-cast cocktail stirrer next to macabre skull pendants.
