We can be an opinionated bunch — especially when it comes to shopping. Who's the raddest new designer this season? What's the greatest heel on the market? And, most importantly, where's the absolute best place to shop? So, you can imagine our reaction when GQ recently named New York City’s Crosby Street the coolest shopping street in America. Sure, some of R29's faves are located on the alley — Jil Sander, Saturdays NYC, and Bloomingdale’s, to name a few — but, is the cobblestone stretch really the best block on offer? We beg to differ. And, so do some of our favorite fashion folk.
So, we huddled up with 11 power-shoppers, like Moda Operandi's Laura Vidrequin and designer Dion Lee, to find out where they believe the best shopping street resides — and, not just in the U.S., but the world. From Paris' Rue de Grenelle to Sydney's Glenmore Road, these are the spots our jet-setting friends swear buy.
