An offshoot of designer Roberta Freymann’s eponymous women’s clothing label, this resort-inspired clothing and home line gets a second NYC location (the first is on the Upper East Side). The whimsical collection is made in India and includes men’s ($85) and women’s ($45–$155) garments, accessories ($5–$160), linens ($50–$250) and furniture ($500–$3,500). Items such as bone-inlay keepsake boxes ($125), elephant-clad journals ($20) and vibrant patchwork blankets ($150) pop against the sunshine-yellow walls, which were hand-stenciled with floral and bird motifs by Freymann’s sister, Lisa Wassong, and Dominique Lange of Wassong Lange Studio (wassonglangestudio.com). Ladies can find patterned-canvas satchels ($125) and breezy tuniclike kurtas ($85–$145), while men can nab playful fish-print button-up shirts ($85) and swim trunks ($85) decorated with monkeys. Venture to the small, chandelier-lit back room to pick up beaded bags ($125–$275), bib necklaces ($125–$225) and cozy capes ($195–$295).
