(All) Natural Newcomers


With Halloween behind us and Thanksgiving on the horizon, all we dream about is “cozy”– in every sense of the word. We’re on the hunt for new sumptuous sweaters; we’re re-examining our skincare routines as prep for cooler weather; and, we’ve even got end-of-year gifting on the mind… Serendipitously, there are three new New York shops that seem to tackle exactly that– even better, they’re all-natural and sustainable too.


We were fans of the OG-sustainable fashion brand EDUN long before we kicked it with its easygoing CEO Julien Labat, but, admittedly, shopping it wasn’t always easy. (Think a constant trolling of multiple e-tailers, all of whom had a limited selection of pieces.) Fortunately, times have changed. The brand launched e-commerce earlier this year and, this fall, it opened its first boutique in the heart of SoHo (fittingly, right next to CP favorite, Sant Ambroeus). Everything from the clothing to the mosaic floor pays homage to the West African artisans EDUN works with and a number of unique pieces are exclusive to the Lafayette shop. (FIND IT)

Onda Beauty

May Lindstrom, Vintner’s Daughter, Goop… yep, gang’s all here— at Tribeca’s new Onda Beauty, that is. Conceived by friends Larissa Thomson and Sarah Bryden-Brown, the airy, blonde wood boutique is the latest to open in the “natural beauty” space. Its shelves are stocked with curated products that are natural, organic and actually work— everything from shampoo to anti-aging cream to healing crystals— and soon, the tiny shop will offer spa treatments, meditation and occasional sound bath events too. The ladies have already secured one super-fan: their fellow gal pal Naomi Watts, who is now a boutique partner. (FIND IT)

Good Goods

Part-gallery, part-flea market, part-artist’s collective, Good Goods is a revolutionary “retail laboratory” that provides emerging brands access to urban selling space via month-to-month memberships. Essentially, its newly opened SoHo boutique showcases an array of rising, local designers who dabble in everything from ceramics to coffee to clothing. Good Goods accepts new brands on a rolling admission with its founders Rosa Ng and Eric Ho especially on the look out for pieces that are socially driven, eco-friendly and/or locally-made. Think of it as your new gifting go-to. (FIND IT) CP
