Founded in 1999, this popular women’s boutique chainlet expands with the opening of its fifth NYC shop (the others are in the West Village, Tribeca and on the Upper East Side). Unlike the other locations, which carry established labels such as Opening Ceremony and Alexander Wang, this spot focuses on goods from local and independent designers, as well as Otte’s own eponymous collection. Women will find chic threads ($150–$500), footwear ($250–$500) and an extensive selection of jewelry ($65–$700) from labels such as Frame Denim and Maison Boinet. Highlights include Otte New York polka-dot oversize tees ($245), Leon & Harper plaid-sleeved sweatshirts ($176) and Golden Goose glitter-encrusted sneakers ($552). Top jewelry picks include Maria Francesca Pepe stackable spiked rings ($175) and Bing Bang rose-gold skull studs ($42).
