One of the best things about New York City is that amongst all the skyscrapers, construction, and food trucks, there are hidden gems that provide a much needed breath of fresh air to the congested city streets.
This past Saturday I had the pleasure of stumbling upon Kaight, an eco-boutique dedicated to advancing the image of green fashion. The store was opened by Kate McGregor and it stocks the best sustainable designers from the U.S., Europe, and Canada.
I was super impressed by the store’s aesthetic—-everything was neatly placed and beautifully showcased. There were racks of to-die-for coats, sweater, pants, and dresses, from the likes of eco-design stars Samantha Pleet, Stewart Brown, Linda Loudermilk, and Camilla Norrback, plus loads more, who deserve to be recognized and praised.
Ultimately, Kaight serves customers with the urge to make ethical purchases, however one step inside the quaint little shop will turn any fashionista green in no time.
Can’t get enough of Kaight? Be sure to check out the new store location in Brooklyn too! It just opened at 382 Atlantic Avenue.
The Lower East Side location is 83 Orchard Street, between Broome and Grand.
