Diva Designer: Yumi Kim

Yumi Kim

The Lower East Side in Manhattan is one of my favorite places to visit in NYC. There are tons of great restaurants and cafes, and designer and independent boutiques. Living in Union Square last summer, I visited the Lower East Side quite frequently since it was close by. While browsing one day with my friend, we walked into the Yumi Kim shop on Stanton Street, and fell in love. 

Kim Phan, the owner, opened her Manhattan store in Fall 2008. The store includes the Yumi Kim collection, along with vintage jackets, boots, dresses and handbags. Her collection is filled with unique prints, colours and styles made for the urban and funky female. 

Here are some pieces from her summer collection:

Besides her flagship store in the Lower east side, her collection can also be found at Intermix, Ron Herman, Nordstroms, Bloomingdales, and Saks.

  6. I didn't realize she had a store. I picked up a Yumi Kim top last fall at Anthropologie and it's quickly become one of my favorite pieces! I also really love the "goddess dress" that you picked out. Can't wait to see more from this designer.
