As Fashion Week ended, Odin’s womenswear counterpart and new neighbor quietly opened in the East Village. Finally! The 500-square-foot boutique is arranged similarly to Odin, with racks and tall shelves filled with clothing, shoes, accessories, and fragrances lining both sides of the long, narrow space. But this sister store has a decidedly and appropriately lighter, more feminine vibe. The checkerboard-tiled floor, blue-gray wallpaper, antique-inspired furniture, and chandeliers are modeled after a Parisian boutique. But the shop’s real draw is its drool-worthy lineup of designers, offering apparel from bold names like 3.1 phillip lim, Alexander Wang, Karen Walker, Diana Orving, Vena Cava, and Coventry and Clu, with accessories by Philip Crangi, Scosha, Comme des Garçons, Boyy, Repetto, and Loeffler Randall. Thank God Fashion Week is over and we finally have time to go shopping. See more images after the jump.
