Put away your passport, as this week New York receives a threesome of exciting imports. On Friday UMA, a Brazilian contemporary brand with stores in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro that enjoys an art-world following, arrives in the West Village. Fitted with furniture from the Brazilian design showroom Espasso, it’s the place to stock up on gallerina-chic staples (tailored straight pants, leather) and cardigans with unique embroideries created in collaboration with the Brazilian painter Geova Rodrigues ($468). At 371 Bleecker Street.
At noon that same day, COS, the editor-adored purveyor of affordable Scandi minimalism, will open a second store, in Midtown. Expect understated pieces where the devil is in the details, as in a white cotton sateen collarless shirt with exaggerated cuffs and a draped back ($125). At 505 Fifth Avenue.
On Sunday, two New York-based Peruvian designers, the jeweler Andrea Bocchio and Michelle Peglau of the knitwear label Hortensia Handmade, will open a pop-up called El Mercado Peru. It will be filled with handmade housewares and accessories and culinary treats, including stone candleholders ($90), a baby alpaca infinity scarf ($120) and cacao nibs chocolate ($8.99). At the Corner at the Roger Smith Hotel, 501 Lexington Avenue.
On Thursday at 6:30 p.m., the jewelry designer Kendra Scott will introduce one of her signature Color Bars at Bloomingdale’s. At the bar, which is stocked with semiprecious stones, you can assemble baubles like a gold earring with rose and ivory mother-of-pearl ($120).
Also on Thursday, from 7 to 9 p.m., the designer Rachel Comey and Emily Spivack, author of “Worn Stories,” a collection of narratives about used clothing, will host an event at the Rachel Comey store. Attendees are invited to bring or wear a garment reminiscent of the changing seasons as well as a story they would like added to Ms. Spivack’s archives. Participants will receive a 10 percent discount on new fall items like a denim coat with shearling lining ($1,138.50, originally $1,265). At 95 Crosby Street.
Next Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., the auction house Doyle New York — as part of its fall Focus on Style series of presentations featuring luminaries in the worlds of American painting, contemporary art and fashion — will host a book signing for André Leon Talley’s new tome, “Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style.” At 175 East 87th Street.
