Broadway divas, opera stars, and grande dames of a certain age flock to this Upper West Side institution—a destination since1970—for their fix of bold clothing and vibrant accessories with a strong sense of drama. Owner Lynn Dell scours up-and-coming designer markets in far-off countries like Japan, Denmark and Morocco to compile an eclectic mix of theatrical pieces, most of which are cut in generous, flowing proportions. Up front lie crinkled silks, Issey Miyake-inspired evening suits by Ivan Grundhal and ruched metallic ponchos fit for descending a grand staircase. Two steps down in the back of the room is an in-store consignment shop called Reruns with campy, vintage looks like leopard-print Dior jeans that attract a younger clientele. And since no diva worth her diamonds can forego accessories, there are plenty of options near the entryway; find rhinestone drop earrings, chunky plastic beads, and tiki-inspired necklaces.
