You will definitely enjoy shopping at Legacy if you enjoy shopping for unique designer clothing and vintage pieces. Better price point women's wear, along with a rack of select vintage clothing too. With the fabulous finds from designers who fall just under the radar, you are sure to never be wearing the same outfit as anyone else!

 

* While ZTrend strives to write fact-based pieces about New York City's small boutiques, "splash visit" profiles may contain inaccuracies, as "splash visits" are merely the interpretation of the writer's first-hand experience and should not to be relied upon as fact.

 


Have a knack for shopping vintage? For shopping unique? Visit Legacy SoHo. For 30 years, owner Rita has been providing the area with threads from designers who are a little under the radar. Never again be caught in the same outfit as your girlfriend. And don't break the bank doing it! And for the past four years, she has been providing the same in her Brooklyn shop.

Rita believes clothing should be fairly priced and the idea of overpriced vintage and designer pieces takes the fun out of it. She carries designers from other countries who haven't quite hit the mainstream and other labels like Elsa Esturgie, Antipast, Repetto and Orla Kiely, as well as her own Legacy label and local "labels" like Mirana Bennet and Sir.

Everything here has an vintage aesthetic to it which beautifully compliments the store itself. They offer exquisite shoes, hats, coats, gloves and even socks. Some things in particular to check out: gloves from Japan woven with little flowers made of a stretch wool/silk/nylon blend. Also make sure to check out their wool hand-knit stoles and berets and the elegant vintage French seed-beaded purses from the 20s and 50s.

While Legacy mostly carries clothing, the jewelry is a worthy display. It is a mixture of vintage and originals including an impressive and evocative collection of mourning jewelry, some of which contain letters and lockets of real hair. Yes! If that's not vintage, what is?

Want the next new thing no one knows about? It's here. Prison rings. Never heard of them? They're black rings which bear the face of a loved one made by prisoners in the 20s and 30s. In the same vein, make sure to check out her selection of Black Amoors from the 40s. From Italy, detailed ebony and black coral is carved into the faces of Black princesses; set in 18 karat gold, some of the faces are wearing tiny orange coral earrings. Exquisite!
