Raising the bar on Lincoln Road retail for men and women, Alchemist is the brainchild of edgy, young newlyweds with fashion backgrounds. The groom, Roman Cohen, grew up with parents who own Oxygene, while the bride, Erika Sussman, is a former fashion editor.
Treating Paris as a second home, they share the love with Martin Margiela, Rick Owens, Givenchy and Dior Homme plus Belgians Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester.
Not all items break the bank though, such as stretch leather leggings from The Row. Jewelry is another story—Delfina Delettrez’s wacky cocktail rings and Erin Wasson’s body chains don’t come cheap.
