John Piermarini may be young, but he's light years ahead of most of us, owning his own boutique, which has already been successful enough to earn a new space in Snider Plaza. Inside, you'll find racks stocked with contemporary clothing for men and women and a small selection jewelry and handbags. Brands include favorites, like LnA tees and tanks and Abi Ferrin blouses, and yet-to-be-known lines that Piermarini hand-scouts in New York. We love discovering his basics with edgy twists (a blazer with exposed zippers, perhaps) and statement pieces (like digital print dresses and cutout sweaters). Always check for a sale rack. Last season's merchandise can be purchased for up to 40 percent off. Looking for underthings? Check out Abi & John, a collection of soft tanks and slips made in collaboration with Abi Ferrin.
Update: Piermarini has moved from Uptown to Snider Plaza.
