Needing a place to hide out for refuge from street harassment, Gothamist ducked into a cute, inviting boutique on Prince Street. Looking around, we realized we had just read about the store in Daily Candy. Esujin has very simple, clean pieces with subtle unique touches, like contrasted white piping on a blue pinstriped skirt, that are all very wearable for work and play. Daily Candy said it would be clothes you and your mother could agree on, which is true, but that does not mean it's boring. We especially loved the fun purses and silky dresses.


Esujin is at 4 Prince Street, between Bowery and Elizabeth Street. Phone: 212-219-3368.
