Shopping Around: December

Great style comes full circle



Eco-Chic Boutique

Impeccable style and eco-conscious shopping intersect at a new boutique on the Avenue called atelier 360. While you can feel good about any purchase you make here—the designer clothing, handcrafted jewelry, luxe gifts, and artisan-made goods are mostly organic and many have ties to charities—the pieces are so beautiful and sophisticated, you’d shop here anyway. “We’d like to be the Whole Foods of fashion,” says Liz Logie, a former clothing designer who founded the store with Veronique Lee. “We support smaller designers who are coming up with creative ways to help the environment,” says Veronique. “It’s about the provenance of the product, where it came from, how it’s made.”

Those products include Eric Raisina’s colorful silk scarves and shirts from Madagascar, Love is Mighty shoes made from fabric scraps and recycled biscuit wrappers, hand-embroidered tunics from Filip + Inna, chic sustainable clothing by Susan Woo, Hortensia alpaca accessories from Peru, and garments by up-and-coming Brooklyn designers such as Feral Childe and Artists & Revolutionaries.

The selection also includes menswear and unusual gifts, such as Elvis & Kresse travel bags, iPad cases and belts made from old fire hoses and parachutes (50 percent of profits go to fire-related charities). Says Veronique, “All of our products do good in some way.”

Paving the Way

This holiday season give a gift that will last forever. In the effort to restore the Old Barn at Tod’s Point, The Greenwich Point Conservancy is offering the opportunity to purchase an engraveable white granite stone on the soon-to-be-constructed Seaside Walk. Stones can be engraved with whatever you like—your name, your family’s name, the name of a loved one (anything up to 118 characters). This $200 gift is a special and unique opportunity to remain a part of the Greenwich landscape for generations. Visit greenwichpoint.org or call 203-637-3400 for more information.
