Ask a Shop Clerk

Desiree Verdejo left her law career to open one of Harlem’s first high-end cosmetics stores, Vivrant Beauty (220 Saint Nicholas Ave.).

Why the switch? Over the past few years, I’ve watched Harlem’s vacant lots become fancy restaurants, but I still had the same problem I always did growing up in this neighborhood with an acne-prone complexion: no skin-care shops to help me find masks and washes for my individual needs. Now, my salesperson is a certified aesthetician and I handpick brands like Flo + Theo, a local vegan line by two Nigerian sisters, and carry foundation that comes in the full color range, from porcelain to deep brown.

Yazid Aksas’s Public Factory is a co-retailing space for 12 brands (310 W. Broadway).

Clockwise, from bottom left:

“This Elkel jacket ($469) is unisex. And it’s for going out.”

“St. Frank is the only home-goods brand here because the products are fair trade, like this skull made by an artisan in Mexico ($225).”

“I designed this Aksel shirt ($135) with a double stitching that molds to the contours of a man’s body.”

“I’d use this Enter backpack ($169) for groceries because it has so many inside pockets.”

“Instead of an hour hand, the whole face of this Orikami clock ($115) spins.”


Upstairs

Alan Maleh just opened a physical space for his magazine-cum-e-tailer Man of the World on the second floor of his other menswear shop, Gentry (108 N. 7th St., Williamsburg).

“We signed a lease for the apartment above Gentry that we decided to integrate into the store. Downstairs is for the younger, edgier, Japanese-inspired man, but when you walk upstairs, the lifestyle changes. It’s for the James Bond–meets–Paul Newman tailored gentleman who travels with a leather Globe-Trotter carry-on bag ($1,835) and wears a Native American thunderbird cuff ($360). Upstairs, everything is for sale, including the vintage Nigerian hand-beaded chairs ($5,000 each), and there will be someone who represents our $15,000-per-year concierge service to book your plane, hotel, restaurant reservations, and cultural events when you travel. We say Man of the World is everything a man needs and nothing he doesn’t.”

How is camping different
in Japan?

“In America, people usually camp because they’re doing another outdoor activity like canoeing, so we’ll spend $1,000 on the canoe, but the tent is $150 from Walmart. In Japan, camping is the activity. They don’t actually do anything but cook and hang out, so they’ll spend all their money on gear — like our titanium sake bottle ($180) and cups ($35) — which has to look elegant while also being smart enough to pack small and fit in Tokyo’s limited spaces and small cars. We have a bamboo table (from $330) that folds in half and will slide underneath your futon in a single action, which actually does really well in New York apartments too.”

Deconstruction
London’s Shore Rugs has designed a rug for your standing desk (from $240; shorerugs.com).

(Photo: Courtesy of the vendor)

1. The leatherlike surface is nonslip, so there’s no need for underlays, even on wood floors.
2. Each rug is made using thick 12-mm. cords hand-woven in traditional techniques — an artisanal touch among corporate furniture.
3. Since silicone has no fibers, the rug is hypoallergenic and completely waterproof, for an easy cleanup when you spill the morning coffee.
4. It’s available in four color-gradient options and three round or rectangular sizes, but can also be customized according to your cubicle.
5. The 100 percent silicone material feels like a gel shoe insert and is designed to release the leg strain and fatigue normally caused by standing on hard surfaces for long hours.

How do the Swedes do childrenswear?
“The style in Stockholm is very minimalist, even for the kids. It looks amazing, but everyone can end up looking the same. So I also wanted to bring in pieces that had lots of prints. I bought a Fabergé-egg print and made it into a dress ($111) that would look great over black leggings. And the most important things to us are good fabrics. We make our onesie pajamas ($44) using the softest Peruvian pima cotton: It’s organic, hypoallergenic, and has longer fibers than regular cotton. If it’s not soft, we don’t buy it.”

We have a modular stack of foam mats and 3-D shapes, so you can feel how you bend and stretch in each item. We also see the space as a starting point for activity—we organize yoga classes and hiking meet-ups, so you can wear our new merino-wool jogging pants ($135) there. Or to brunch in

So this is like SoulCycle for meditating?“Yes. Most meditation centers have a minimum two-hour commitment; our sessions are 30 minutes. We’ve assembled a team of the best meditation teachers from all different traditions, and we offer a wide variety of classes: If you can’t sleep, there’s MNDFL sleep, where you’ll take deep breaths to help decompress and relax your body. If you’re feeling low-energy, you could take MNDFL energy, where there will be a lot of quick inhalations and exhalations. The last few minutes are always question-and-answer time for everyone who might have tried meditation through an app and wondered, say, if it’s normal to start seeing colors.”

How to Remove a Stain From Your Air Jordans
Three tips from Michael Curtis of the new sneaker-restoring Retro Revivals USA (831 Flatbush Ave.).

1. Use a pencil eraser: “People often come in for a cleaning before they go out for the night. I start by lightly brushing the scuffed area with a pencil eraser.”

2. Watch the chemicals: “Stronger stain removers like OxiClean can peel synthetic leather. You can dip a toothbrush in 1 cup of water, ¼ cup of Resolve, and a squirt of dish liquid.”

3. Dry as you go: “Cleaning solution carrying leftover dirt sinks into the thread crevices, so dry off each section with a white towel before it can drip.”

“Since my first day as creative director last November, I knew I wanted the store to have super-high ceilings and as few beams as possible, so that I could have space for things like these pairs of four-foot stilettos — one is filled with display shelves for shoes, and the pointed toe of another is a seat. There are giant bags and hats that double as shelving for the actual bags and hats. There’s a 12-foot mannequin wearing a supersize black-and-white dress from pre-fall ($1,895). She was sculpted in Italy; I can’t wait to meet her.”

Riders sit inside 30 bioluminescent fiberglass fish of 12 different species (including angel and blue discus), created by set designer George Tsypin.

The 35-foot-tall spiraling structure mirrors a chambered nautilus; 77 lights and projectors splash watery film onto its walls.

Fish rotate on four turntables, which circulate in varying directions to simulate the natural movement of fish in an aquarium.

SiriusXM’s in-house composer, Teddy Zambetti, wrote an original classical-music soundtrack for the three-and-a-half-minute ride.
