Feminine prepster clothing meets edgy accessories in this contemporary designer’s first East Coast shop. The collection, which ranges from lace-and-leather apparel ($60–$2,500) to animal-print and studded add-ons ($58–$595), is inspired by the designer’s travels to Bali and South Africa. Chiang’s girly-with-an-edge aesthetic is embodied by the store’s decor: plush velvet sofas and glass display tables offset charcoal drapes and jewel-toned walls. Ladylike leather clutches with chevron lace detailing ($695), quartz stones set on two-finger rings ($195) and leather sandals with croc-embossed ankle cuffs ($395) pair well with draped-back dresses trimmed in metal chains ($195). You’ll also find signature teddy-bear-embellished items, such as velvet slippers ($195) and gold scented candles ($145).
