Gotta love when T, the New York Times style magazine, points out Israelite fashions. Mentioned in The Haul, a new posting section for T blog contributors about what they forage while on vacation are writer Daphne Merkin’s recent purchases while in the holy land.

She chose a Kedem Sasson sundress, Sarit Bar-Zohar bag and a funky necklace from Atara de Lange.

Here’s what Merkin had to say about her Sabra shopping:

“Who knew that a trip to Israel would unearth such stylish artifacts? Tel Aviv’s newly gentrified neighborhoods, like Neve Tzedek, are brimming with one-of-a-kind boutiques offering the handiwork of talented Israeli designers. But the real surprise is Jerusalem, a city catering to the soul rather than the surface. Here, on Bezalel Street, is Sofia, a tiny shop that carries a small but brilliantly edited selection of made-in-Israel clothes, shoes and bags — every bit as worth a visit as the Western Wall.”
