While Sex and the City put Patricia Field's New York City boutique on the map for the world to find, it was no secret to those who called The Palladium home. Since 1966 — Long before dressing Carrie Bradshaw and her girlfriends for a night on the town, Sex and the City stylist, Patricia Field, had already established her celebrity among the New York City club goers with her outrageous sense of style, curating a one-stop dream shop for trendy fabulous clothing, shoes, bags, quirky costume jewelry and a beauty bar where anything goes. Her eponymous department store stretches one full block, between Bowery and Elizabeth Streets, filled with racks and racks of colorful ravewear, clubwear and outrageous footwear such as dazzling studded sky-high cheetah pumps and platforms.
Dance music blaring throughout the store, sets the mood for shopping Pat's favorite designers and the House of Field collection. The lower level is reserved for intimate apparel, strip-tease costumes and the beauty salon. Overlooking the balcony from the ground floor, shoppers catch glimpses of the legs of top-talent stylists hard at work. Experienced cosmetologists know their stuff when it comes to unconventional hair cuts and colorings, wig fittings, manicures, makeup and mind-blowing lash applications. While Pat Field's is where one would instinctively go for a head-turning color treatment and cut, we want you to know that hair color correction and classic styles are a daily request at Patricia Field's salon.
