An oasis of taste, grace, class and style 7/7/2008

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Mieko when her shop was tucked away on Grove in the West Village. It was a Wonderland, an Oz, a Heaven on Earth and remains so after the move to Thompson in Soho. Quite frankly, I would follow her anywhere. Her shop is an oasis of taste, grace, class and style. The designs are unique, and manage to be classic and fanciful at the same time. The fabrics are exquisite to the eye and delicious to the touch. The care and kindness you receive as client or browser is unparalled. One of the things I love most about the shop is the way Mieko and her staff sense who you are, what you will love, what will look great on, AND what you MUST have. They pull it and hang it and help you in every way imaginable. They tailor! You always will feel beautiful in her clothes and in her shop. Mieko is the gift to yourself (or a friend) that keeps on giving. more

Beautiful fashion ecosystem 6/16/2008

The Mieko Minz Store is like a small fashion ecosystem of beautiful clothing and accessories. They are so skillfully designed, considered and made that I always find not just one thing I want, but the whole collection. Every piece is very unique and there is always an element of a surprise or humor and definitely artistic touch. It is a store which presents an individual way of thinking about fashion. If you are not a main stream fashonista you will find there are many beautiful clothes and accessories for yourself and your lucky friends. more

Artisan textiles and knits make interesting, unusal clothes 6/16/2008

Meiko is not only a talented designer --- she designs many of the selections --- she has an eye for selecting work of other distincitive designers. The fabrics, handknit, hand loomed, from antique Japanese komono's or screened can be subtle or colorful. I always get compliments when I wear one of her jackets, knit tops or hats. The service couldn't be better and she makes adjustments so the garment fits as if it was custom made. more

Amazing Textiles-Stunning Design 6/15/2008

Stopping in to browse at Mieko Mintz is delightful. Here are one-of-a-kind, handmade clothing, scarves, hats (fantastic hats) and jewelry you will not find elsewhere. When I say hand made, I mean (most of) the cloth is hand made, hand woven, and/or hand dyed. The beads are not only hand strung but often hand made, combined with found objects--extra-ordinary. The knitting (and I'm a knitter) are original, exceptionally well-designed, and beautifully executed. When I wear something I have found at Mieko Mintz--a necklace, a ring, a scarf, a hat--I always receive a compliment - from someone with a good eye, another artisan, an artist, or a fellow knitter. Equally inviting are the quiet, intelligent and whimsical personalities of not only Mieko but also her staff. This store is a treasure. more

The best boutique in town - and it's a big town! 6/9/2008

Unique and flattering designs for every figure, gorgeous fabrics - they shop the world for them - and the best basics as well (I bought a pair of the Perfect Pants, went back a week later and bought five more pairs). Buy one of her jackets and years from now people will still be asking you where you got it. Add kind and individualized attention, expert tailoring for a reasonable fee, a serene ambiance, , and special evening events different than you'll find anywhere else (on Kimono Night, the proprietor chose me for a model, and an expert kimono dresser turned me into someone I've never been before). I think you should go there, right now. Pros: Nothing but pros at this place of grace and beauty Cons: There aren't any. more

Unique items of great beauty 6/9/2008

I've been a customer for years. Extraordinary fabrics and great design. Meiko has things you will not find anywhere else. Pros: Ambience Cons: Parking more

Something fun and funky for every season 6/3/2008

Mieko Mintz is simply amazing! It's not only my favorite place to buy beautifully unique hand knit hats and winter accessories that are cozy and uplifting on the darkest and coldest of winter days, but they also have the most gorgeous hand detailed jackets and handmade jewelry. I always go in ""just to find a gift"" and end up buying a thing or two for myself because I just can't resist. The staff is especially lovely which makes the experience that much more special. Pros: Everything, everything more

The Place to go in NOHO 6/3/2008

On a cold, slushy day in New York, I happened upon this extraordinary Noho boutique. The adorable, hand-knit hats in its window drew me in. Once inside, I was greeted by a friendly sales associate, and was then introduced to Mieko, a delightful and most creative designer. I was awed by many of the items in the store. Specifically, a glamorous apple green evening coat, a unique, plaid beret, an unstructured silk blouse, and the fantastic fabrics from which an outfit can be customized.. The shopping experience was unique and satisfying, and I've kept in touch with Mieko Mintz over the years. In fact, she is on the lookout for the perfect fabric to create a gem-toned something for me. Now that's service! I urge shoppers to make a trip to Noho to visit Mieko Mintz's boutique. It's both fashion-forward and fun! more

A great shopping experience 6/2/2008

Great selection of unique clothing and accessories. The fabrics and styles are original and make great additions to any wardrobe. The staff is friendly and helpful. Mieko will even custom make anything you desire! Who could ask for anything more? Pros: great selection and great service more

excellent style 6/2/2008

As a professional photographer, my wife depends on Mieko for her ""look"" --Mieko's creations are both functional and style forward --we love the store and try to get down every season to see what's new. Pros: great service and black pieces for the photographer more

intriguing, artsy boutique with joyfully wearable clothing & accessories 6/2/2008

I stumbled upon this shop when visiting from San Francisco. I enjoyed just looking around at the unique items (playful, elegant, hand-crafted), and ended up buying several that I was delighted and surprised quite suited me, some affordable, others more pricey, but completely worth it. The soft Mieko-designed pants are fabulously comfy and flattering. The industrial yet earth-tone ear rings I wear often are my very favorites and always, always get compliments. I appreciated the gentle, friendly assistance. Along with visiting my daughter, my cousin, and MOMA, this shop is a certain destination when I return to NYC. Worth a trip just to view the wonderful offerings, but I'm sure I'll end up bringing home something special. Pros: great items, service Cons: can be kind of pricey more

you won't see this at the box stores 6/1/2008

There is nothing like Mieko in Oklahoma...and it's worth the trip. Each piece is a work of art, and each article always has a little twist, something unusual, an Asian flair, a funky pocket...whether it is a hat, a dress, or one of her divine jackets. Mieko is a true talent. Pros: clothing you don't find anywhere else Cons: you do pay, but it is always great quality more

Mieko Mintz 6/1/2008

I can always find something in this store that I want to buy. The fabrics are beautiful . You don't see yourself coming and going and someone will always ask you where you purchased your outfit. The attention and service could not be better and if you can not find something exactly to your liking, they will custom make it for you. I count on this store for special occasions such as weddings etc. I dislike shopping at crowded department stores and this shop is extremely comfortable and welcoming. Everyone of the staff is lovely. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good quality clothes in a personalized setting. more

Beautifully different 6/1/2008

I make regular pilgrimages from Jersey City and never leave empty handed. And it never fails--every time I wear one of Mieko's pieces, complete strangers ask me where I bought it. I especially love her woven pieces, though I admit, I haven't yet screwed up the courage to buy one of her amazing knit hats. Maybe next winter! Pros: beautifully-crafted, unique clothes, bags, hats, scarves, and jewelry Cons: with she had a store in jersey city! more

Unique AND practical clothing 6/1/2008

From a plum cashmier opera coat to custom made knit tops, Mieko designs make me look much cooler than I have a right to. Her Soho shop is a treat of color, inovation and personal service. Pros: Inovative design and great service Cons: Price, but timeless pieces are worth it more

Addictive hand made apparel 6/1/2008

Mieko Mintz is always a delightful experience. The exotic, fun and user friendly Pros: All pros more

They have creatively designed hats and lovely gifts. Salespeople are gracious and helpful. 6/1/2008

I have three terrific hats from this store. One is a classic wool beret, one is a kooky but beautifully crafted knitted cap and the other is the widest brimmed straw beach hat you've ever seen. We just bought a pair of earrings to give as a gift and I've given lovely scarves and tops as gifts from this store as well. Shopping here is a pleasure. The people are friendly and helpful and the environment is peaceful. Pros: ambience, service, beautiful merchandize Cons: a little pricely for some items but sales are a good deal. more
