Husband-and-wife design duo Didier and Evelyne Chetrite started this Parisian brand in 1984, and are expanding their NYC presence with a second boutique (the first is in the West Village). The minimalist, 725-square-foot space is decorated with antique-oak flooring, whitewashed brick walls and wood tables. The neutral palette is ideal for letting vibrant pieces, such as ultra-girly lace-and-silk dresses ($320) and cotton cutout frocks ($320), pop. You’ll also find basics with a twist, such as bleach-splattered jeans ($285) and Hawaiian-print tanks ($220). Top off your ensemble with chic outerwear (fringe jackets with leather trim, $495) and accessories (neon leather sandals, $390).
