This unassuming boutique carries an impressive assortment of headwear for men and women made by Jennifer Ouellete, a London College of Fashion alum. In 1999, Ouellete was granted her own U.S. patent for a headband that maintains its shape without elastic—and without giving you a headache. Wiry and wrap-around silk headbands keep company with peacock-feathers, berets, old-fashioned woolen top hats, cuddle caps, and mod headpieces. The small, neat shop has a tiny staff and Ouellette herself can often be found designing and producing her creations in a back studio space. While many of the styles have old-world charm, they attract some trendy fans—a wall of the shop is covered with magazine cutouts of Lindsay Lohan, Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, and Gwen Stefani wearing Ouellette’s high-end millinery.
