Upon entering Metier you're immediately enveloped in a wealth of modern cuts and luxurious prints. The Union Square boutique houses a mix of American and European designers including Alexander Wang (#1), Graham & Spencer, Isabel Marant and Zero + Maria Cornejo (#5, #7), who seem to define edgy-luxe fashion. While the prices are often more than just a pretty penny, the artful clothing definitely warrants the occasional investment. For a lovely spring splurge, check out our picks from Metier's latest collection.
