Paris-bred owner Stephanie von Watzdorf was designing for Tory Burch before she launched her own, more literal take on jet-set style: one where the largely one-of-a-kind goods are sourced from around the globe. At her narrow shop framed by a Moorish archway, shimmery Moroccan wedding blankets (from $800) pile up near racks of embellished vintage military jackets (from $1,300), which are hand-beaded with snakes and other talismans by South Indian artisans. Scattered throughout are wads of affordable jewelry and accessories, often with a philanthropic connection, ranging from hand-knotted rope bracelets that say Klahan (“brave”) in solid-brass Khmer script ($38)—each sale provides a new fair-trade job in Cambodia—to India-made, flying-elephant-emblazoned canvas totes ($65); 30 percent of the profits goes toward wildlife protection.
