I found this store because I always walked my dog past it. When I walked in one day, there was only 1 lady sitting there, who interrupted her lunch to help me pick out clothes. The selection is small - this is Tribeca - but the service is amazing. She was so nice, and I was wearing old ratty jeans and a North Face hoodie, so I was actually expecting the usual New York snobby saleslady. Anyway, the clothes are expensive (an off-the-shoulder cotton top with lace stitching was $295), but very well-made and extremely beautiful. Just a note, that like all smaller designers, there's no returns or refunds, so splurge wisely. She gave me sample sale prices on a silk kimono jacket I bought, which was nice. I would definitely come back for their sample sales!

I found this store & designer recently, and will be back! The design of both the clothes and the store caught my eye, and I spent a very happy hour or two in there, very well looked after by the lady in charge, who excels at her job :) The designs are clean, classical, flattering and soft; the materials are beautiful - silks, linens, cottons, wools; the cut is excellent. The colours are less trendy than classical (to me this is a good thing). I came away with two bags of clothes. I love every item I bought, and they are items which will last in my wardrobe & flatter me when I wear them :)
