Patrons saunter down Maiden Lane to glimpse the latest from the lady-label best known for bringing the tunic's sexy back..
Inside a 1,500-square-feet space that looks like a citrus bomb exploded all over a New York socialite's Miami pied-a-terre, the eponymous designer's current collection awaits on racks surrounding a central, salon-like seating area defined by crisp, white couches. With spring green carpet underfoot, orange lacquer accents and lucite fixtures playing throughout the space, the ubiquitous prints gracing the apparel and the prominent metal logos glinting from the tips of shoes seem almost subdued in comparison. In both its appearance and its offerings, this store caters to its customer: that certain kind of well-heeled woman who prefers her preppy with just the right amount of bling and classic silhouettes delivered in notice-me hues. For shoppers with pint-sized fashion hounds waiting at home, a small selection of kids' shoes presents a chance for (almost) selfless retail indulgence.
