This French brand specializes in feminine basics and eveningwear—silk blouses, cashmere sweaters, and dresses embellished with bows, lace, and pleats. Before this store’s opening in 2007, Diab’less was only found in Europe and a handful of boutiques in the U.S. The boutique’s dainty décor includes pink lighting along the clothing racks that cheerfully illuminates the ruffles, appliqués, and tulle of the feminine garments. There are also some bolder metallic and sequin dresses to balance the ultra-girly numbers, and the label’s high-quality basics (and its wide spectrum of prices) make it appealing to women of all ages. With its limited U.S. presence, though, the shop draws chiefly French ex-pats and local passersby. The sales team offers free private-shopping parties for guests and their friends, complete with Champagne and hors d’oeuvres.
