If you've spent years listening to your boyfriend/intern/best man friend rave about Odin and you're like, "OK, I get it. Enough," then it's finally your turn.
Eddy and Paul, the revered team behind the beloved men's store, opened a women's outpost in September, called Pas de Deux on 11th between 1st and 2nd, and we finally took a moment to hang out with Paul this morning.
He showed us the tightly edited selection of Wang, Lim, Engineered Garments (an Odin favorite), Vena Cava, Coventry, etc, merchandised together for easy-to-understand shopping. The clothes, basically our dream wardrobe, are accessorized with hard-to-find shoe styles from Repetto and Loeffler Randall, sunglasses from Karen Walker and Linda Farrow, and a handful of jewelry from mostly Brooklyn designers.
For Spring, they're introducing Coming Soon by Yohji Yamamoto and Richard Chai (who conveniently happens to be Eddy's brother). The tiny, and gorgeous store is meant to be your dream closet, and the blue wall paper, mirrors and girly chandeliers scream Holly Golightly - a very elegant scream, of course.
If we could've left with an entirely new outfit - save for our motorcycle boots - we would've. Instead, we left with a new favorite store and big plans for our closet.
