it’s little, it’s cute, it’s filled with some very nice stuff. marc and max lingerie has all the big names, maybe not super fancy, but what you’d expect from a high quality shop: vibrant red slips from cosabella as well as items from simone perele and elle macpherson. the colors are deep, in gorgeous jewel tones, and the materials silky smooth. all in all, very nice.
in addition to the big shots, marc and max lingerie has been using an in-house designer from project runway, ricky lizalde. his things are especially appealing, really nice detailing, and he’s been doing the shops displays too. marc and max lingerie carries a small amount of jewelry including pieces by a local designer. for such a small store, they have a surprisingly good selection. a nice addition to what is now a chain-filled street (poor bleeker!). marc and max lingerie, 342 bleeker street near 10th street, manhattan, new york, 212.647.1688.
