    Salespersons are super nice. After I failed shazaming the song that's playing in the store, they told me where to get it. I know this is unrelated but still, I'm thankful.

    The destination for it-labels like Alexander Wang, Band of Outsiders and Kenzo. Their own label and collabs with the likes of Chlöe Sevigny & Jeremy Scott keep OC at the top of the retail game. Read more

    The clothes are great, but the customer service is hit or miss. Some of the staff act as if they're too cool to do their job.

    The bathrooms (yes, there are two!) are just before the staircase on the main floor of the women's store. Beware: One of them has no sink, so everybody will no you didn't wash your hands.
