NYU grad Helena Greene fills her inviting Harlem concept store with a well-edited selection of high-end designer apparel and internationally sourced home furnishings. The décor is Hindu-inspired, with a large statue of Ganesh reposing near the front of the store and figures of deities perched atop shelves and screen printed on tees. But the mixture of men’s, women’s, and children’s garb reflects Greene’s high-fashion sensibility, including silky tanks by Rick Owens, cashmere sweaters and ties by Christina Bomba, knit dresses from Ann Demeulemeester, and miniature Album di Famiglia frocks. The wares are arranged with an artistic touch: English leather handbags are propped on wooden chairs, Sphatika skin-care products adorn a carved vanity, and the clothing hangs within hand-painted boudoirs. Sculptural glass and ceramic vases from Belgium are filled with flowers and feathers, setting off colorful table linens. Greene can often be found seated at a large communal table near the entrance, where she chats with shoppers over cups of spiced Kusmi tea.
