One of our favorite New York stores, Assembly, just launched an e-commerce site. Opened in the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 2008, this small but well-curated shop stocks the likes of Rachel Comey, Raquel Allegra and Dries Van Noten eyewear in addition to a selection of beautiful vintage pieces. The online store carries the same inventory as in-shop, so now everyone can partake in the fine selection. Our two favs, above.
