Arm-wrestling fellow fashion junkies over the last size zero DVF wrap dress isn’t my idea of a pleasurable shopping experience. So when I came across Caravan91, a chic, “appointment-only” clothing, accessory and lifestyle boutique, I immediately dialed the secret number to secure a private shopping slot.
Ideal for Prima Donnas who don’t have the strength to deal with the pushing and shoving that inevitably takes place at traditional chain stores, Caravan91 provides a stress-free, VIP shopping alternative. Since setting-up shop last spring, even downtown divas have been making the trek uptown for a taste of Caravan’s coveted star treatment. Why all the fuss? Aside from never having to wait in line for a fitting room, at Caravan91, you’ll have the entire space to yourself whilst slipping into an assortment of pre-selected designer outfits culled by their in-house team of expert stylists. With hands-on service similar to that of a Hollywood starlet, you won’t have to lift a finger… except when charging your credit card.
As for the quality of merch, Caravan91 carries a bevy of international brands your wardrobe is screaming for, like sizzling Custo Barcelona bikinis, luxe Carlos Falchi leather handbags, slinky Shoshanna trapeze dresses, casual Iso tanks to jaw-dropping Dirty Librarian Chain jewelry. Should you feel overwhelmed by the stunning selection, a sip of complimentary Moët should ease the tension. If you can’t land an in-demand Caravan91 appointment, don’t despair. You can catch a similar selection of wares on wheels, literally, inside Caravan Mobile, the familiar silver van that holds court around some of the city’s hottest zip codes. In fact, if you happen to be near the Meatpacking District this Saturday, make sure to stop by the retail mobile from 1pm-12am. Just look for the big truck stationed at 9th Avenue and 13th Street.
