I pass by this shop all the time walking on Lafayette, and its so dark and intense that I find myself often intimidated. The funny thing is, I think this is one of the coolest stores in New York. Bess. It used to be a Keith Karing store but is now the home of Doug and Bess Abraham's amazing jewelry designs. He apparently is in charge of the Ralph Lauren jewelry collection, but you would never know bc this store is anything but waspy. Aside from the jewelry, they have vintage t-shirts, random posters and sculptures, and my favorite, their studded collection of jeans and shoes.They play good music too.
