Bond 07

We tagged along after our glamorous Jennifer, hitting some of our favorite downtown boutiques, to give you a look at the kind of thing we like for spring.

First to Selima Bond 07 in NoHo (that's 7 Bond St. (212) 677-8487).  This shop is a real scene:  very hip, very French, very high-energy.  The sales help is eager to assist you, and help you accessorize an outfit.  They don't just have clothes at Bond 07, they have a tremendous selection of bags, jewelry, shoes, hats, eyewear, and they sell some fragrances and beauty products.  It's a lovely space; a lovely place to be in.

Here are some of the items manager Alexandre Sauvageot selected for Jennifer to try on:
