Your shopping list just got a little bit longer thanks to this list of Denver’s latest store openings. From Highland to Cherry Creek, here’s where to shop (and what to buy) now:
Judith & Joe (pictured above) and La Lovely Vintage, 3040 Blake St., Unit 100, 720-443-1176
Go For: The first brick-and-mortar locations of two former mobile fashion trucks (La Lovely’s wheels are currently on hiatus). This bright space is filled with sustainable wares—everything is either recycled, upcycled, produced responsibly, or supports philanthropic initiatives—including men’s and women’s vintage apparel, jewelry, and American-made clothing and accessories.
Shopping List: Tees for her and him by Threads 4 Thought, retro women’s dresses and sterling silver jewelry, and unisex upcycled canvas and leather totes by Denver’s own LoHi Bags.
Metalmark Fine Jewelry, 1600 Boulder St., 720-441-4635
Go For: A welcoming, low-key boutique stocking a mix of emerging international and Colorado-based fine jewelry designers at a range of prices. Highlights include Denver’s own Samantha Louise and Bloom Jewelry, as well as the award-winning, geometric designs of Kavant and Sharart.
Shopping List: Amour Absolu’s XO studs in 14-karat gold with white diamonds, $950
Spinster Sisters, 3070 Blake St., Suite 170, 303-501-0005
Go for: The second location of one of the city’s leading all-natural, locally made face and body care lines.
Shopping List: The handmade soaps are amazing, but the Lavender Solid Lotion ($13) is especially great for summer travel (it’ll pass TSA scrutiny in your carry-on), as is the Herbal Healing Salve ($18) for summer rashes, sunburns, and muscle strains.
Berkeley Supply, 3229 E. Colfax Ave., 720-445-6818
Neighborhood: City Park
Go For: Berkeley’s popular made-in-America menswear shop added a location, but it’s still carrying heritage brands such as Filson, Woolrich, and Wolverine.
Shopping List: Tanner Goods’ handsome Voyager Daypack in salt-and-pepper canvas with English bridle leather and brass hardware accents ($300)—the perfect carryall for any summer outdoor excursion.
Division West, 257 Fillmore St., 303-800-4448
Neighborhood: Cherry Creek North
Go For: Streetwear gear for men, including clothing and sneakers.
Shopping List: DW’s new sleek, modern store is just across the street from its prior location. The clothing is cool—the linen shirts by Stüssy are a summer must-have—but it’s the limited-edition kicks from brands like Nike, New Balance, and Saucony that are the real stars here.
