Take all the cool that Italian design that drips into the Diesel brand and then distill it into a single location.  The result is more then a super hip  jeans store, it is the Diesel Denim Gallery.  While you can also shop for the best in Diesel-ware, the canvas for art installations is reason enough to visit.  Artists like Korban FlaubertClemens Kogler, Paul Clay, Jason Hackenwerth and his balloon art, Christian Nguyen, and Jaime Hayon Arrojadoa with Elements designed for Moooi.  Sebastien Agneesens, the founder of Formavision, has orchestrated the majority of the exhibitions.

Shop for accessories, a few lines designed especially for the store, and ‘limited edition’ hand made denim jeans.  If you are curious about the jeans phenomenon, a new documentary Blue Gold can shed some light.

The Diesel Denim Gallery itself is warm and open.   The furniture and displays are hand crafted and unique,  while the space swims with the natural light.  The staff is friendly and obviously happy being there.

Opened on 2006, the P.S. Bookshop, selling used and out of print books in DUMBO, Brooklyn, is a at the top in its genre in the whole of NYC.   Neatly organized with may categories, they buy and sell all sorts of printed matter.

As you enter there is a large Magazine display and a couple of postcard trees- selling funky, obscure prints.  Then, in the first room you find Architecture, Art, Fashion, Photography, Graphic Novels and every thing related to Design & the Arts.  Tucked to the side, is a locked cabinet with their fine selection of rare, first editions  and collectibles.  I was lucky enough to peruse an Arthur Rackham illustrated first edition.

Tucked behind a low row of books and the counter is a section dedicated to children and young adults.  A wonderland of stories along with a play area for very young ones an their parents.

The back half of the shop is a high ceiling-ed, well fenestrated space home to a loving labyrinth of book shelves cradling all your favorite fiction, history, literature, poetry, etc.

The selection is extensive in every area, surprising you on every shelf with obscure tiles, exciting topics, translations of your favorites and signed copies.  The P.S. Bookshop is one of those lovely bookstores that you should allow yourself the time and pleasure of presence in the joy of the printed page.  Grab a book and curl up in one of the comfy chairs dotted around and enjoy.

Last, but most importantly, the staff is  helpful, knowledgeable and kind.
