FALL ‘14/GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY

image

image

Nothing compares to fall in The City. Changing leaves, a wardrobe swap, and a definite change of pace. As days seem shorter and cooler temps are ushered in, we layer up, don our best boots, and savor our last days of dining al fresco. Here’s the HATCH Fall Guide to some of our New York City favorites: 

BEST PRESSED / Arguably the most animated and well-known juicer in Manhattan, Melvin Majors, Jr. of Miss Lily’s & Melvin’s Juice Box has a longstanding history with the neighborhood. He will keep you coming back for his healthy Jamaican concoctions. The Rootsman—Coconut, Kale, and Banana is a must-try.

Where/ Melvin’s Juice Box, 130 West Houston St., Greenwich Village; 646-588-5375
When/ Monday - Friday  7:30am-10pm & Saturday/Sunday 8:30am-10pm

BEST BOUTIQUE BET / Want to walk a mile in your favorite fashionista’s shoes? You can, at Eva Gentry Consignment. The not-so-thrift store is a collection of barely (or never) worn designer threads and shoes owned almost exclusively by top fashion editors.  Stop in and snag some boots to pair with your favorite fall dress.

Where/ Eva Gentry Consignment, 371 Atlantic Ave., Brooklyn; 718-522-3522
When/ Monday - Saturday 11am-7pm & Sunday 11am-6pm

BEST TIPS / Channeling the neighborhood’s industrial past, nail salon tenoverten brings back the simple pleasure of getting a mani-pedi. Outiftted in neutral shades, natural materials like limestone, wood and seagrass, and the coolest metal pedicure basins, this is not your ordinary nail spot. Schedule an appointment for tenoverten Custom Pedicure.

Where/ tenoverten, 132 West Houston
When/ Monday - Friday 10am-10pm & Saturday - Sunday 10am-8:30pm

BEST TEA TIME / Having tea in the quaint East Village tea room Podunk is reminiscent of dollhouse tea parties as a little girl. Its eclectic décor and hodgepodge of tea kettles and teacups make for a perfect Sunday afternoon. Drop in for cucumber tea sandwiches and tell owner Elspeth that we said hello. 

Where/ Podunk, 231 East 5th St.
When/ Monday - Saturday 11am-8pm & Sunday 12pm-8pm

BEST BED/ A boutique hotel with a cool vintage vibe, The Bowery Hotel is close to exquisite dining and just a cobblestone’s throw to the best shopping in Soho and neighboring NoLita for a mix of international designer retailers and independent shops.

Where/ The Bowery Hotel, 335 Bowery; 212-505-9100

BEST BOUQUET / Flowers are even more beautiful when they come with a story. Brooklyn floral shop Opalia, named for the Roman goddess of abundance, is worth a visit as they craft a fragrant narrative with each stem from the interior of their rustic Boreum Hill storefront.

Where/ Opalia Flowers, 377 Atlantic Ave. Brooklyn; 718-634-9160
When/ Tuesday - Friday 11am-7pm & Sunday 12pm-6pm 

BEST SMALL PLATE / A classic New York favorite, Grand Bar at the Soho Grand Hotel offers patrons a space rich with leather, oak and gold accents. A simple, yet delicious menu begs us to sit and stay a while. Try Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta and the Edamame Dip.

Where/ Soho Grand, 310 West Broadway; 212-965-3000
When/ Thursday – Saturday 6pm-2am

BEHIND THE SEAMS/Outerwear

Taking inspiration from seasonal transitions, our Fall/Winter 2014 Outerwear collection was designed to carry you seamlessly through each season with the perfect pieces to beat the chill or bundle up. From HATCH classics to cold-weather newcomers, our outerwear offering of lightweight layer-on pieces and two new figure-flattering wool coats will keep you warm through winter.

Making its return, our classic Trench is that early-fall staple that’s both flattering and comfy. Debuting this season is a grownup version of your favorite throw-over-anything piece—The Hoodie, with a cool asymmetrical zipper in a lux Japanese terry. Also premiering this season are a few heavier pieces: The Montaigne Coat—giving you a really chic way to take a stroll, The Bomber Jacket—a shorter, sporty jacket in its classic pilot shape, and our roomy Topper Coat in charcoal gray wool will everyday winter coat. Our tailored Blazer has even gotten a night-out update with a satin lapel. Rounding out the collection is a HATCH classic—The Ultimate Cardigan, your every day, everywhere sweater.
