OTTE_MadisonWho is the buyer for OTTE? I feel that they are a true kindred spirit. Every piece in the store seems so in place, so thoughtfully chosen…It feels like walking into someone’s amazing closet (they even have a small lingerie rack.)

Carries girlish but sophisticated brands, think: T by Alexander Wang, See by Chloe, Claudie Pierlot, Catherine Holstein, Pencey, Sonia Rykiel, and Vanessa Bruno. They also have a lot of jeans by JBrand and Current/ Elliott, bags by Lauren Merkin and others, and shoes by Loeffler Randall, etc. In their own words, “OTTE offers casual to dressy looks with a sexy, urbane twist.”

I haven’t really done a very good job explaining why Otte is special…All I can say is that it is really quite lovely, filled with soft cottons and fluttering pattered silks, and worth a visit. There is one store in the West Village, one in Brooklyn, and one on the Upper East Side (across the street from my high school, although it wasn’t there when I was.)

(note: they don’t hold items, which is sort of annoying, and some of their items, like the Love Quotes scarves, are non-returnable or even exchangeable!)
