Eddy Chai and Paul Birardi, the duo behind menswear store Odin and the perennial pop-up Den, are opening a women’s boutique in the East Village called Pas de Deux (a ballet reference, if you’re wondering, for when a man assists a woman). The new shop is scheduled to open August 15 directly next door to Odin and Den, sharing an address with Odin and forming a regular styled-out row. Instead of the blue walls and dark wood detailing at the men's shop, Pas de Deux will be decked in the style of a chichi French boutique (no small feat, considering the space was formerly inhabited by the dank King Billy’s Tattoo parlor). The covetable lineup of designers will include Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, Diana Orving, Rag & Bone, and Shipley & Halmos for apparel, Boyy handbags, and shoes from Repetto and Loeffler Randall. Peek into Den while you’re there to check out some style-savvy men; Engineered Garments is scheduled to supplant the Common Projects shoes pop-up in Den at the end of the month. —Lauren Murrow
