Manhattan – Upper East Side
1124 Third Ave between 65th and 66th Sts
At her debut womenswear boutique, Raquel Trout endeavors to transport the calm of St. Barts back to New York. Dividing time between her career as an attorney and this labor of her love, Trout ignores anything of-the-moment. She searches only for pieces poised to become prominent and permanent additions to your wardrobe. Appropriate to the resort motif are the Lisa Goodwin charm necklaces ($85) and Poupette tank tops ($40-50) displayed in a silvery conch shell. An Anna Sui spiderweb lace dress ($245) and paint-splashed Le Shack dresses by Tracey Feith ($425) translate easily from shoreline to street.
