A wonderland for those in need of fancy headgear, Alexandre de Paris makes all of their headbands, bows, and snoods in France, then ships them to this small, whimsical shop. Here, Swarovski-studded butterflies and velvet bows lie alongside rows of tortoise-shell headbands, amethyst-encrusted barrettes, and combs inspired by the Art Nouveau era. Equally as precious as the store’s supply of hair ornaments is its manager, Jovy Couldrey, who communicates daily with her French offices and takes suggestions, and even design requests, from her customers. "If you need it, I will find it!" she's oft-known to coo in her Parisian accent. That offer extends to items as simple as the silver clips on the counter to more one-of-a-kind pieces like the silk and pearl headbands displayed along the walls.
