Australian design duo Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke arrive stateside with the brand’s first international flagship. The 2,000-square-foot space features a driftwood-inspired sculpture that winds throughout the boutique, providing an artistic backdrop for the racks of women’s ready-to-wear clothing ($200–$3,000), denim ($200–$300) and accessories ($150–$400). Although basics such as raw-hem tanks ($140) and ripped boyfriend-style jeans ($290) are available, the real draw is the party pieces, including cropped silk capelets ($450), laser-cut leather peplum tops ($590) and ribbon lattice bustiers ($350). Dramatic metal-and-Perspex neck pieces ($290) and goat-suede ankle pumps ($490) are sure to punch up any look. Don’t miss the ten-piece collection exclusive to this location—the woven sweaterdress ($420) is a highlight.
