Humberto Leon and Carol Lim really created something special when they decided to start Opening Ceremony. The store, located between SoHo and Chinatown, represents downtown cool with such perfection that it's almost intimidating. OC's reach goes far, as the store collaborates with brands like Levi's and Pendleton, actresses like Chloe Sevigny, and movies like The Muppets, while curating the season's best collections every time.
