New Zealand–born designer Rebecca Taylor brings her feminine, flirty women’s label to the Meatpacking District with the opening of her second Manhattan store (the other is located in Nolita). Each month, she handpicks her favorite movies and books (such as the cookbook Good Things in England, by Florence White), as well as home accents like candles and pillows to sell in the Parisian-inspired shop, which is decorated with ornate moldings and a tin ceiling. In addition to wardrobe musts, such as floral-print jumpers ($375), tulip-print ballet dresses ($375), scalloped leather jackets ($695) and python messenger bags ($275), the boutique offers sterling-silver dolphin necklace and bracelet charms ($110–$125) created by Taylor and her jewelry-making sister, Tory. Proceeds from the charms will be donated to the Oceanic Preservation Society’s campaign to save the dolphins in the Pacific.
