Last Week, Hedi Slimane launched the house of Saint Laurent Paris back into fabulosity at Paris Fashion Week with his couture coven of witches. While most people got caught up in the collection’s drama with Cathy Horyn, I became absolutely bewitched by the collection and spent hours trying to wrap my head around the fashion house’s mysterious name change. Inspired by YSL SS13 and witch inspired fashion in general, I headed downtown to Enchantments, my favorite spiritual supply store, on 9th St. between 1st Ave. and Ave A.
I discovered Enchantments three years ago when I first moved the city. In the mist of searching for a job, I picked up a candle said to bring career success. I lit it for seven days as directed and by the next week, I had three interviews one of which was at Vogue. I didn’t end up getting any of those positions, but I was happy to have brought forth a much-needed change in the universe. When I spoke to the owner, Stacy, about taking pictures at the store for my fashion blog, she mentioned having made custom candles for some of the biggest names in the fashion industry making me feel even more spiritually connected to my favorite fashion designers and editors. To rediscover your fashionable spiritual side, find Enchantments on Facebook and check out my photo shoot that just may make cauldrons and candles this season’s hottest accessories.

Obviously, this place is going to have amazing Halloween windows. I’ll have to stop by again soon because they add to them on a daily basis.
