Pas de Deux

In ballet, a pas de deux is a duet. In fashion-buying, the “it takes two” approach also worked wonders for duo Eddy Chai and Paul Birardi (of Odin and Den). Pas de Deux, their petite womenswear effort, is located on a cozy corner in the East Village. Diligently decorated, it possesses all the essence of a Parisian boutique: floral bouquets, checkerboard-tiled floors, powder blue walls, crystal chandeliers and gently antiqued, fragrance bottle-bedecked vanities. Silk dresses and angora sweaters by Phillip Lim, delicately-detailed cocktail dresses by Vena Cava, studded bags from Alexander Wang, Repetto flats, and BOY by ’ oxfords are among the trendsetting brands that are elegantly displayed for your perusal. Do also stop by the weathered wood armoire in the back for some wrist candy: tiny, gold key trinkets by Phillip Crangi and Bing Bang’s bespoke bracelets by Anna Sheffield will give you the upper hand any time, anywhere.
