Profile

Its name, which means "darling" in Swedish, may refer to the toddler-size party togs at the back of this shoebox-sized boutique but the main attraction is the whimsical, wearable, Renaissance-evoking clothes for women. Die-hard clients include many of the city's classical musicians who rely on the shop for concertwear that's as romantic as the music of Brahms. Bias-cut crushed-velvet frocks and décolletage-enhancing tops with ruffled three-quarter sleeves seem made for orchestra pits or the proscenium stages at nearby Lincoln Center. Somewhat less theatrical, comfy crepe separates, slip dresses in playful prints and ankle-length mermaid skirts in muted colors are seasonal stand-bys for Upper West Side professionals. The clothes are the creations of a Swedish designer and are manufactured in Queens. Most everything can be machine-washed and tumble-dried.
