The Last Days of 10021

It may be the last days of a unified 10021, but the posh spirit of the Upper East Side should continue to run unchecked up Madison Avenue. During the nice weather, the well-heeled finally step out of their Town Cars and take a stroll.

Below, traveling up Madison Avenue, with stops at Roger Vivier and Tom Ford on the way.

The bad news: the new Roger Vivier store is just as tempting as it's cracked up to be. The good news: the prices are the same as or less than Bergdorf's shoe department. Somewhere, Manolo Blahnik should be worried. Very worried.
by far the coolest silver sandals of the season
These shoes just made me want to kill myself.

Tom Ford has only gotten better with age. Everything in his drop-dead sexy new boutique telegraphs the message, "You want to sleep with me." He can even make the clich├ęd Japanese men's silk dressing gown look desirable. Will Ferrell, eat your heart out.


Above, the fragrance Japan Noir. It's no coincidence that the aesthetic here feels both modern yet familiar: Eastern influences plus traditional men's clothing draws on the fad of Orientalism at the turn of the last century.
