The trend in travel is to experience your destination like a
local. Guides tell us how to talk like a local, eat like a local
and drink like a local. In the magazine world, September is
all about fashion, so we’ve pounded the pavement (so you
don’t have to) to give you the inside scoop on where to
shop like a local in Philly. Whether navigating the posh fashion houses or
the latest boutiques, shopping in this city can be overwhelming. Philadelphia is a city of neighborhoods and each offers its own unique retail
attitude. I’ve focused on three neighborhoods that are must-visits for
most travelers. Make some room in your suitcase, and get started. Can’t
you hear Walnut Street calling?
Build your own Philadelphia itinerary at wheretraveler.com.
>> MORNING: OLD CITY
Old City boasts more than
historic venues and colonial
sights; it also teems with
locally owned stores and
offbeat art galleries. Shop
indie boutiques like Third
Street Habit, Lost + Found,
Vagabond and The Geisha
House for trendy women’s
clothing and accessories.
The area is also rife with art
galleries including LGTripp
Gallery, Muse Gallery, 3rd
Street Gallery and Moderne
Gallery.
where in the world
>>MIDDAY: MIDTOWN
VILLAGE
After lunch, make your way
to Midtown Village. Find oneof-a-kind jewelry from local
and international designers
at Bella Turka, handmade
all-natural soaps, scrubs and
soaks at Duross & Langel,
stylish home accessories and
children’s gear at Open House
and trendy accessories and
women’s clothing at Verde. If
you’re looking for high-end
vintage pieces, be sure to visit
Philadelphia Vintage and
Consignment Shoppe.
>>AFTERNOON:
RITTENHOUSE SQUARE
Head to posh Rittenhouse
Square for a luxe designer
experience. From national
retailers like Coach, Tiffany and
Co. and Stuart Weitzman on
Walnut Street, to local boutiques like Joan Shepp, Duke &
Winston and Knit Wit on Chestnut Street, options abound for
sophisticated shoppers. Nearby, luxury shoe boutique Head
Start Shoes stocks the finest
designers, including Fiorentini
& Baker, Roberto Del Carlo and
Vic Matie.

Where do you find the inspiration for your designs?
I draw inspiration from a lot of different places. My favorite thing to
do is travel, and when I go on these
different trips, I just get so inspired,
whether it’s a beautiful art piece
I’m looking at, people-watching on
the street or a beautiful fabric that I
see. The ideas just start, and it happens. So it’s usually from traveling,
but also just living. I’m drawn to
beautiful things.
THIS PAGE ©HL GR OUP/DAN LECCA. OPPOSITE ©HL GR OUP/LISA R OMEREIN
What was the inspiration behind
the fall 2014 collection?
It was the mysterious side of Monique. The season is very dramatic,
it has a lot of darker shades—midnight, black and metallics. It’s also
sleeker. I tried to keep the collection dark and mysterious, but I also
added some pops of color in the
fuchsia and the lush pink. In fall I
like to have the collection be a little
more dramatic than romantic. I feel
that women need that darker side.
A lot of people know you for
bridal. Are you expanding the
ready-to-wear collection?
I started my company 17 years ago.
The first seven years, I was only doing wedding gowns. Those were
a great start for me, but then I
wanted to dress women throughout their lives rather than just on
that special day, which is how the
ready-to-wear started. Now, I want
to dress her earlier in the day, so
you see more separates and what
I call “high day” looks in the collection. It then goes into evening and
gala gowns at night. Another new
thing for me is shoes; this is my
second season doing shoes.
What pieces or trends do you
think are key for fall?
I think a great lace shoe bootie is a
must in the wardrobe. I also think a
great cocktail dress with a great fit
and a bit of shimmer is key for the

wardrobe. The final component
of my collection is the statement
gowns—I love seeing women put
that effort in and transform for that
one evening and make it memorable, letting the fantasy back in.
What is the most important
piece or pieces to your own
personal style?
A great-fitting cocktail dress is a
signature of mine. I feel like it’s
so versatile, it takes you to so
many different places. I travel a
lot and know these pieces serve a
great purpose.
How often do you travel?
Twice a month.
What are your best travel tips?
To over-pack is just a drag. I always
say plan your wardrobe two days
before you leave and style it out
with the shoes, the belts, etc., so
that way you’re very well-edited
and it doesn’t take up a lot of
space. If you’re organized, it makes
traveling a breeze.
What is the first thing you do
when you arrive at your new
destination?
I like to unpack and get everything
hung, and then I take a walk and
see my surroundings—the neighborhood, check out what sort of
things there are to do in the hotel.
I like to discover immediately.
How do you make a hotel room
feel more like home?
I bring my music with me; that
makes me feel at home. I also bring
a fragrance with me, whether it be
a candle or an air spray, so it smells
like me and my environment. If it’s
a long stay, I order fresh flowers
which automatically makes it feel
more cozy.
What are you listening to
right now?
I listen to a lot of Pharrell. I also listen to Coldplay. I like to dance, so
I have a lot of dance mixes—I love
David Guetta, Justin Timberlake.
When you travel, do you like the
aisle or window seat?
If I travel with somebody, like my
husband, I like the window seat;
but if I travel alone, I like the aisle.
I like to be independent and not
cross over anybody and bother
anybody.
What’s your favorite
vacation spot?
Too many to mention! But I have
some favorites. I love going to
Venice and eating the delicious
food—it’s so beautiful. I also love
going to Capri and staying at the
J.K.Place Hotel; it feels like your
own private beach house. We also
love going to Aspen, Colo., which
is only a two-hour flight from
Los Angeles—we’re a very big
outdoors family, so we ski a lot in
the winter; in the summer we like
to bike and hike. But I could go on.
I also love Paris.
What’s one thing you can’t be
without when you travel?
My iPhone, because I can take
pictures with it, I’m always
connected—if somebody needs
me, I’m very accessible. I have
my music, my pictures and it just
keeps me on track.

Philadelphia’s Top
New Restaurants
BY A.D. AMOROSI
If you’ve arrived to the City of Brotherly Love looking for somewhere new and
notable to eat, we’ve got the must-try spots to satisfy your epicurean quest. From
tempting neighborhood eateries to sophisticated Center City restaurants, Philadelphia’s food scene is stronger than ever. Read on for the restaurants you should
know about this fall.
Mamou
Petruce et al.
Crow & the Pitcher
The Treemont
CAFE YNEZ
Husband-and-wife team Jill Weber and Evan
Malone spent a lot of time South of the Border
before debuting this Mexico City-themed
diner located in the bourgeoning Graduate
Hospital/Point Breeze area. Rotisserie chicken
and a variety of sides are on the dinner menu,
but it’s the breakfast and brunch burritos—
like the carnitas cemitas with pulled pork
and oaxaca cheese—you’ll crave long past
your afternoon siesta. 2025 Washington Ave.,
215.278.7579, cafeynez.com
THE TREEMONT
Chef Chip Roman makes his Center City
entrance with this dimly-lit, airy bi-level
restaurant. Though the new-American menu
changes seasonally, Roman’s Parisian gnocchi
is a delicious constant, and his six-hour cured
cobia with black rice is a sensualists’ delight.
231 S. 15th St., 267.687.2237, thetreemont.com
MAMOU
Mamou brings the Cajun flavors of Louisiana
to Philly’s Midtown Village. Expect dishes like
skillet-roasted Louisiana red fish-crawfish
tomato fricassee and grilled boudin with hot
pepper jelly, as well as gumbo and po’boys
topped with oysters or bbq pork confit. 102 S.
13th St., 215.735.7500, mamouphilly.com
COOL COCKTAILS,
STYLISH SCENES
Philadelphia might be known as a
beer town, but make no mistake:
we like our drinks stiff, our cocktails
artisanal and the environment we
sip them, dark and elegant Here, the
places to sip in style.—A.A.
Oxblood-colored leather seating and
blackened windows gives The Franklin
Mortgage & Investment Co. (112 S. 18th
St., 267.467.3277) the ultimate downtownspeakeasy vibe. Plug into the scene with
artisanal cocktails such as “The Mother
of Invention,” made with Famous Grouse
Scotch, Fernet Branca and ginger syrup.
Step beyond the imposing, texturalwooded door at chef and owner
Justin Bogle’s Avance (1523 Walnut St.,
215.405.0700) and head to the swanky
subterranean bar. The clean lines, slender
silverly light fixtures and swiveling spaceage seats are the stuff of modernist’s
dreams. The elegant bar is stocked for a
sophisticated cocktail experience.
Heavy on the subtly dramatic and
dark decor with corner windows for
environmental lighting, a.bar (135 S. 18th
St., 215.825.7035) gives off the feeling of
floating in the night sky—an apt sensation
when it comes to imbibing the dreamy
“Drop the Mic”, a single malt whisky with
Chartreuse, Lillet Rouge and lemon.
CROW & THE PITCHER
Chef Alex Capasso’s Crow & the Pitcher radiates
panache with its rustic Anglo-American feel.
The curried almonds and white bean dip
crostini aren’t your standard bar snacks. And
then there are the entrees: black grouper,
poached Maine lobster and pan-roasted
Lancaster chicken leg confit. Absolutely order
cheeses from the “cheese cave.” 267 S. 19th St.,
267.687.2608, crowandthepitcher.com
PETRUCE ET AL.
The focus here is on wood-fired cooking. Start
with sweet potato with tomatillo and queso
fresco or octopus with field peas and hot sauce
before ordering up the pork shoulder or the 20
oz dry-aged strip loin. Be sure to get your fill of
the hearth-baked sourdough bread.

skewed perspective and thickly painted surfaces. He is said to have said, “I want to astonish Paris with an
apple.” The Barnes Foundation mounts a tightly curated exhibit, The World Is an Apple: The Still Lifes of
Paul Cézanne, on view now through Sept. 22. The rare paintings compliment the 69 works by the “Master
of Aix” displayed in the permanent collection. 2025 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, 215.278.7000, barnesfoundation.org

James is a perfect example
of this. In my own designs, I
try to combine the extreme
styles I love with something
that is more accessible to
create something special.
My perfect day

Coffee and Croissants
Grab a cup of La Colombe coffee
to go, and then walk over to Miel
Patisserie for a chocolate croissant.
Afterwards, head to Rittenhouse

Knit Wit
[designer, Jacques Ferber]
After graduating Drexel University with a degree in design and merchandising, Jessica Ferber joined her family’s
135-year-old fur business as a designer and marketing
manager. The brand Jacques Ferber was established in Paris
in 1879 before a flagship store was opened in Philadelphia
in 1927. Today, her uncle Andre Jr. and her father Kenneth
carry on the family lineage. We chatted with her after the
recent remodeling of the Walnut Street store. 1708 Walnut St.,
215.735.4173, jacquesferber.com
Jacques Ferber has been
part of the Rittenhouse
Row shopping scene since
1927. Why the renovation?
Renovating the building at
1708 Walnut St. has been
something we have wanted
to do for years. Suddenly
everything just seemed to
fall into place at the right
time. The new showroom
is a beautiful space, off of
the hustle and bustle of the
street below. It is serene and
intimate, and a much nicer
environment for true luxury.
Wissahickon Valley Park
What are the fashion
trends that you are seeing
for fall?
Avant-garde styles in fur.
While sheared furs are still
extremely popular, it is such
a pleasure to see trends
sway back towards longer
haired furs like fox
and sable, as well
as towards dyed
and textured furs.
Fur is supposed to
look like fur! It is a
beautiful thing.
What inspires
your designs?
I have always
been a fan of
military styles and
dystopian fashion.
Alexander McQueen
does this beautifully.
I also love refined
looks that require
What are the must-visit
attractions in Philly?
Go to our museums like The
National Constitution Center, Philadelphia Museum
of Art, Rodin Museum and
Mütter Museum. Visitors often overlook the Forbidden
Drive at Wissahickon
Valley Park. Pack
sneakers and go for
a walk.
What is your
dream family
vacation?
I would pack
everyone up
in a RV and
drive all
over the
United
States. I’ve
traveled all
over the
world, but
have seen
little of my
own country.
While there are always tasty weekly
additions added to the menu at
Rouge, go for the Rouge Burger. It’s
the best burger you’ll eat in town.

Art in the Afternoon
From Rittenhouse Square, I’d walk
to Benjamin Franklin Parkway and
spend some time at the Philadelphia
Museum of Art before visiting the
Perelman Building across the street.
Afterwards, I'd head to The Barnes
Foundation. It’s collection of Impressionist paintings can’t be missed.

Dinner at Jane G’s
After getting cleaned up, I’d go
to Jane G’s for extremely spicy
Szechuan food. 1930 Chestnut St.,
215.563.8800
8 pm
Football at Lincoln Financial Field
At this point, I’d put on an Eagles
beanie, fish a subway token out of
my bag and head to Lincoln Financial Field for a Philadelphia Eagles
night game. 1 Lincoln Financial Field

What are some of your
favorite stores in town?
I buy a pair of killer boots
every year from Head Start
Shoes. Knit Wit always has
great sweaters, as well as a
fabulous vintage and antique jewelry. As a true Philly
girl, I have a growing collection of LAGOS jewelry.
