Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair
The buzz: The cult Swedish fashion label founded in 2004 by Astrid Olsson and Lee Cotter has nothing to do with shoe repairs or the swanky New York avenue. Scarce and elusive, the label was only available in limited numbers in select department stores—until now that is. Browse entire racks filled with distinctive Swedish designs at the standalone boutique in the Hilton Shopping Gallery.
The vibe: Like a 3D blueprint from the future, with white walls, metallic display beams and a fluorescent lamp resting between each unit.
The goods: The collection showcases the experimental side of FASR with each style available in two to four different hybrids of the original design. Men’s shirts ($299-339) come in unique layered and uneven cuts while women’s tops and dresses ($119-1,119) boast unconventional shapes and patterns.
Why you’ll be back: For quirky Swedish designs with a tailored sensibility.
