Racked - almost 5 years
Welcome to Shops Illustrated, a Racked feature in which artist Jennifer Hoyden sketches New York City stores. For each entry, she'll draw a street view, an interior look, and some items currently hanging on the racks.

Szeki Chan's shop, Szeki, is a small boutique on the Lower East Side that really caters to the individual, selling a personal and unique array of clothes and handmade jewelry. Her mother designs the handbag collection, and Szeki, who cheerfully runs the shop, designs and makes all the jewelry, using semi-precious stones, gold, brass, gold-fill, silver and antique objects.
The clothing, separates, dresses and pants—most often rendered in fluid silk—are a mix of the store's label, 7115, designed by Szeki, and pieces that her parents find abroad. The latter items tend to get snapped up quickly, as they are one-of-a-kind in the shop.
