Profile

This venue is closed.

The glittered, painted sign hanging above this East Village accessories and vintage shop depicts the profile of a made-up woman modeling jeweled accessories and a colorful head scarf—an apt intimation of the eye-catching wares inside. A neighborhood fixture for more than ten years, this artistic space features swirly, multihued walls and bright origami cranes and stained-glass lamps hanging from the mint-green ceiling. Waist-level shelves are filled with oversize faux-croc handbags from Big Buddha, boldly patterned vintage ties, and glass perfume bottles, while rows of gauzy scarves hang near stacks of vibrant drapes made from vintage fabric. On the opposite wall, clothing racks hold an assortment of vintage and contemporary clothes ranging from dead stock from the Ibiza boutique across town (same owner) to a Betsey Johnson frock from the seventies. The apparel is bright and dramatic, with a focus on long, flowing skirts, and colorful dresses made in Spain, India, Italy, and beyond. A table near the entryway displays the appropriate accoutrements—glitzy chandelier earrings and chunky costume jewelry.
