Ever since Peter Mercurio and Stephan Hermann Worobel opened this tiny accessory boutique in 1987, it’s been a haven for handbag lovers. Regulars looking for new releases from cult brands—say, graphic-printed Orla Kiely sacks or retro-chic Jamin Puech totes adorned with beads—are sometimes squeezed out by casual foot traffic attracted by the window display of whimsical orange crocodile change purses. Mandarina Duck fanatics, in particular, frequent the shop for the brand’s durable nylon luggage and backpacks. And women and men alike gravitate toward the front counter, with its display of Cutler & Gross aviators from London and Paul Smith card cases.
