There is no shortage of shopping in Manhattan, but that never stops us from wanting to check out the newest and coolest spaces from our favorite brands. See what's just opened doors and what you have to look forward to this Summer, and stay tuned to this space for even more great boutiques to drop into as the weather gets warmer (and follow our Pinterest map [1] for exact locations while you're on the go).

Warby Parker

"To spruce up the new space, we called on a few of our favorite artists. Maira Kalman, a woman who's no stranger to New York
(or the cover of The New Yorker), created a series of illustrated portraits for our walls, and Jason Polan, a longstanding collaborator (and dear friend), sketched a neighborhood reading map for us," says Warby Parker [2] in a statement.

Address: 1209 Lexington Ave.

Opening Date: March 22

What to Expect: The brand's third permanent location will boast all of the eyeglasses you expect (plus a fancy pneumatic tube delivery system between floors) along with The Reference Desk — a new service bar format for pickups, adjustments, eye exam check-ins, and more.

& Other Stories

Roland Mouret

"America was the first international market to support me, so it was important for me that it also be the site of my first store outside of the UK. I wanted to create the world of Roland Mouret [8] for amazing American women who want to discover my clothes, to build an atmosphere where she feels relaxed. This is a store but also a home away from home," says Mouret in a statement.

Address: 952 Madison Ave.

Opening Date: Summer

What to Expect: The 1,400-square-foot space will house current RTW pieces, accessories, and the White Collection. This will also mark the first time that reissues of the designer's iconic archive pieces will be available in the US.

John Varvatos

Address: 765 Madison Ave.

Opening Date: Open now

What to Expect: For the designer's 13th store and the first on Madison Avenue, there is a focus on tailoring in an atmosphere that recalls a classic Upper East Side apartment.
