YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT
WANT APOTHECARY DELIVERS FLAWLESSLY CURATED GOODIES WITH A DOSE OF SERENITY.
Byron and Dexter Peart of Want Les Essentiels are very good at diagnosing what people need and then supplying it. They did it with their chic must-have backpack, the Kastrup, and now they’re doing it again with Want Apothecary, a mixed retail concept located within the Nomad Hotel. A tranquil, expansive space, it offers visitors a respite from the bustle of the city and a one-stop shop for fashion (Acne, Jil Sander), fragrance (Byredo Parfums), skincare (Grown Alchemist, Verso), and, of course, Want’s much-coveted leather goods. “With Want Apothecary, we’ve tried to capture the essence of the intimate, trusted retail experience of a bygone era,” says Byron. “Through the use of aged herringbone floors, customdesigned dark oak tables, and Roll & Hill chandeliers, our aim was to recreate a warm, inviting, and beautiful environment.” 12 W. 28th St., 212-481-6010; wantapothecary.com
