This Italian accessories brand brings luxe chronograph watches, jewelry, sunglasses, and leather goods to its first U.S. outpost, opened in summer 2008. The elegant, bi-level boutique was designed by Italian painter and art director Andrea Rosso, and features a wall of hand-painted Italian ceramic tiles. On the main floor, chic leather travel bags rest on built-in shelves and eyewear with colored lenses is highlighted by a backlit wall. The jewelry is simple and sophisticated, forgoing gemstones for a mix of eighteen-karat gold, sterling silver, and steel. Boule drop necklaces, delicate red gold rings, and slim, modern bracelets are presented in simple glass cases lining the walls. Custom-made overhead lighting casts a dim glow over the downstairs space, where shoppers browse dozens of watches while seated in front of the long, bar-like display. The Swiss made chrono watches are the most popular choice for women and men, with an assortment of bands in stainless steel, leather, rubber, or silky aqualino snakeskin.
