Concierge.com's insider take:

The West Village lays claim to some of the city's best microneighborhoods, from the upscale far reaches of the Meatpacking District to the gourmet wonderland of Bleecker Street at its southern end (for foodies, Murray's Cheese at No. 254 is a worthy pilgrimage all on its own). Spend your way down Bleecker between West 10th and Hudson to see big-name haunts like Ralph Lauren, Juicy Couture, Mulberry, and Intermix, leaving plenty of time to pay homage to the block between 11th and Bank Street, also known as "Marc Jacobs Land".

Veer west after Bleecker meets Hudson and you'll find the Meatpacking District, which long ago transitioned from blue collar to boutique. Two blocks up Hudson Street is Elizabeth Charles, home of hard-to-find Australian and New Zealand labels such as Lover, Jayson Brundson, and Karen Walker.

Most of the noteworthy Meatpacking retailers are clustered on and around West 14th Street. Neighborhood pioneer Jeffrey is haute without attitude and is the place to go for both mens and womens footwear. Stella McCartney's flagship has her trademark floaty dresses, sexy separates, and animal-friendly accessories next door is the inventive DDCLab, a design studio known for its futuristic fabrics and sophisticated takes on denim. Blink and you'll walk right by Ten Thousand Things, a small jewelry store showcasing David Rees and Ron Anderson's understated, sculptural pieces. Diane Von Furstenberg's sexy, Pop-bright space on the corner of Washington Street highlights her famous wrap dresses. Skip across over the road to one of Scoop's four neighboring stores for a great edit of right-this-minute labels like Anya Hindmarch resort wear and Alice Temperley bags.

For those with energy (and cash) to spare, you can continue your retail rampage south or east of the Meatpacking district to shops like Flight 001 on Greenwich Avenue, which stocks Orla Kiely roll-ons, quirky luggage decals, passport holders, and more. Then head around the corner on Jane Street to the Pierre Hardy boutique, the brand's first outside of Paris. The opening was greeted with grand enthusiasm by the six-inch-heel set, which flocks here for architectural stilettos, fabulous wedges, and sexier-than-they-have-a-right-to-be pumps. There's also a selection of beautifully made brogues and high-end leather sneakers for men.
