Washington, District of Columbia

Yamak also carries items by well-known designers. I purchased my favorite pair of jeans here - a pair of faded, low-rise Jill Stuart that lace up the front and have exactly the right amount of stretch.
The purses you'll find here are incredible and unique. Something for a variety of price ranges. Names you'll recognize, but also up-and-comers you should check out.
Yamak carries excellent accessories too - jewelry, hair ornaments, interesting shoes, etc.
The store is tiny and has just one fitting room, but that's generally not a problem as Yamak tends to be frequented by Greenwich Village locals and well-informed international visitors.
To get to Yamak, take the 1/9 train to Christopher Street and walk south to Bleecker Street. Turn right and it's just ahead on the right.
You can also take the Sixth or Eighth Avenue lines to Washington Square and walk west along Bleecker Street.
