Fashion, Atlanta, Georgia
Concierge.com's insider take:
For the best selection of labels under one roof, head to Phipps Plaza, an upscale mall in Buckhead with three shops of particular interest (Phipps Plaza; 3500 Peachtree Rd. N.E.; 404-262-0992). Jeffrey carries the same fashion-forward merchandise (from the likes of Prada and Balenciaga) as its younger sister in New York, making it a mecca for women living south of the Mason-Dixon line. Through a 2006 expansion, Jeffrey absorbed a neighboring Bob Ellis boutique and its impressive selection of high-end designer footwear—shoes from Christian Louboutin, Dries Van Noten, Prada, et al. (404-237-9000; www.jeffreynewyork.com). Also of note in Phipps Plaza are Tory Burch's retro-mod tunics and dickeys (866-480-8679; www.toryburch.com) and Jimmy Choo's vertiginous shoes (800-506-9991; www.jimmychoo.com). One of Atlanta's great stand-alone stores, Peoples proves that there's more to Southern style than big hair and white shoes. The tiny boutique in Buckhead carries a well-edited mix of Chloé, Peter Som, and Stella McCartney, as well as an impressive selection of designer handbags, shoes, and accessories (3236 Roswell Rd.; 404-816-7292; closed Sun and Mon).
