The world of C. Wonder, Chris Burch's latest genius retail venture, is bright and cheery with a big dose of fun, affordable luxury. I have eagerly awaited this opening, ever since I heard about it a year ago, and it will not disappoint. Instead, prepare to be awed.
Enter the first store on Soho's Spring Street and get transported to a women's lifestyle emporium, a place where a variety of freshly designed wares at surprisingly good price points await. Arranged by style, different areas of the store cross merch fashion, accessories and home. Be instantly transported to the maximalist realm of Palm Springs Modern, crisp Hollywood Regency, glam Townhouse, chill Vail Cabin and chic American Dream residential-inspired settings that house the fresh, modern and fun collections. High tech fitting rooms include a display panel where you can change the music and add mood lighting, and special scanners around the store allow for you to purchase items on the spot.
Visit C. Wonder to be delighted, amazed and ready to lug home tons of stuff since you will covet it all! Go this weekend for amazing giveaways and visit the C. Wonder Flower Cart out front, where you can send peony and daisy bouquets to the inspiring women in your life, along with a video message.

A chic green velvet perch for weary shoppers

The view as you walk in the door where fashion, footwear, handbags, jewelry, accessories, and home mix it up beautifully.

Vibrant green and white stripes on the walls and bordered boxes on the high gloss floors create an overall peppy, preppy vibe. When can I move in?

Looking towards the front of the store, regal lacquer green C doors set the stage with a big impact.

Vroom vroom goes the floral festooned Vespa scooter.

The Hollywood Regency shoe area with a large round ottoman for try on's.

The sky lit sun room houses tabletop and decorative accessories in a crisp, fresh setting.

Ceramic trays, fun foo dogs and embroidered pillows in pink, red, blue and green.

Make It Yours, a personalization program, makes monogramming a snap with an on site embroidery machine.

A fashion moment.

A brass cat display piece holds earrings. Hey, can I get one of these for my desk?

Enamel bracelets, bamboo detailed bangles and chunky cuffs with link necklaces remind me of great vintage pieces except they are spanking new. Even better.

Dog and animal embroidered pillows make any sofa happy.

The lacquered furniture pieces in the store are sure to get a lot of inquiries.

The highly hued dressing room area with cerused wood trimmed out in bright green.

Osborne and Little's kicky Summer Palace wallpaper ties together the blue and white home accessories and adds a levity to the distinct area.

Animal decoupage and glass candlesticks.

Blue and green lacquer jewelry boxes, round glass vases, picture frames and trays stacked high.

Festive preppy-goes-global ikat tableware.

Why not put plates on the wall in an artful arrangement?

A chic little bundle containing a soft throw and bright orange and white geometric pillow sits on a tailored lacquered stool.

Primary colors mix well together with more tabletop and foo dogs.

Tons of trays, gifty frames, clocks and pillows make great gifts.

So fun, the first couple of pictures made me think this was a new Kate Spade store. I love all the colors! Checking out the website now.

Looks like a beautiful store, one to put on my TO VISIT list. A little bit of Kate Spade and Tory Burch...all such beautiful shops.
It creates a total feast for the eyes! Thanks for bringing this shop to our attention.
