When she founded D.NOLO in 2013, Veronica Clark had intended the storefront to be an evolving concept highlighting a collective of vendors. Since then, it’s continually expanded, adding new in-store “shops” spanning women’s apparel and accessories, eyewear, and home goods. Last weekend, it expanded yet again with the addition of Collective, a mini shoe salon, and Requisite, a collection of women’s apparel and handbags curated by Libby Coyne, a realtor by day for Sotheby’s. Requisite features contemporary, luxe classics with an edge from cult brands from Europe and the U.S., including Cinq a Sept, Intropia, Samuji, Mackage, Stateside, Love Token, and Minnesota-by-way-of-Jamaica designer Mona Nunez—think luxe t-shirts, tailored outerwear, lamb fur vests, easy supima-cotton dresses, and leather jackets, and structured leather handbags.
As its name implies, Collective features a selection of shoes brought in by a collective of D.NOLO vendors including Bumbershute, Bluebird Boutique, and Kindred, including leather boots, luxe sneakers, and chic flats from popular brands such as Rag & Bone, Alberto Offerman, Joie, Vince, M4D3, and Jaggar.
