I was fortunate enough to attend the opening of the C. Wonder store in Manhattan yesterday, and though my boyfriend would probably joke that the “C” stood for crowded, it’s likely a nod to the mastermind behind the brand, Chris Burch, the former husband of fashion designer Tory Burch. The store’s wares definitely have that similar peppy, preppy vibe to them, but in addition to the fashion offerings you’d expect, there were lots of colorful home goodies to be had, too.
I especially loved all the dish sets, but in the end I walked out with a few cool decorative trays, a tortoise shell bowl, and some classic stud earrings (I couldn’t resist). Don’t worry if you aren’t close to the SoHo location — Curbed is reporting that the brand will open more stores in the tri-state area by year’s end, and have its e-commerce up and running in a few weeks. Then you can see wonder for yourself. (Sorry, couldn’t resist that either.)
