In case you haven’t heard, The City’s newly arrived pop-culture attraction New People opened over the weekend in Japantown to hoards of Harajuku lovers, anime fans and film-goers. The 20,000-square-foot complex complete with a movie theater, art gallery, café and retail shops showcasing Japanese street fashion brands is three stories of wall-to-wall eye candy (seriously, even the walls in the stairwells are worth peeking at).
We popped in yesterday for a look. Our favorite floor? Fashion-driven level 2, of course. Here are five things we loved:
1. The intriguingly coquettish pastel-hued lace parasols at Baby, The Stars Shine Bright.

1. High Waisted Skirt from alyssabird, $45: Show off your sun-kissed stems with this voluminous vintage-inspired skirt.

As stylish as it may be, impractical airport attire (think heavy coat, scarf, dress, huge bag, and high heels) will surely maximize space in your suitcase, but will no doubt leave you longing for the comfort of the dreadful Juicy tracksuit. With a little creativity, however, you can still look runway chic in an outfit that feels like PJs. We promise.
