Shopping Around Head to Toe

New Spaces and Places



Luxe Looks

Just in time for fall, vince has opened on the Avenue, stocking luxe everyday pieces from the signature cashmere sweaters to top-quality leather pieces, such as the coveted leather leggings and jackets. This new location showcases the brand’s modern, effortless style with ready-to-wear collections for women and men as well as the full line of boots, pumps and casual footwear. “We selected Greenwich for our next Vince store because it has truly become a destination for luxury retail shopping,” says Jill Granoff, CEO and longtime Greenwich resident. “We have dedicated and discerning customers, both male and female, who reside in the community and we know they will enjoy frequenting Vince for our latest collections.” For fall, the fashion story is all about “mixed media,” a blending of textures such as leather with silk or leather with fur and pieces like a silk-backed cashmere sweater and a beautiful shearling-and-suede reversible coat. The English Military look is big too, with jackets that feature crested buttons and industrial zippers. This month, Vince’s holiday collection will arrive, so you can also stock up on gift items, like scarfs, hats and gloves. No time to shop? Try Vince’s Concierge Service, where a personal stylist will visit your home, check out your closet and then pull pieces that will work with what you already own.

True Colors

In a town well populated with salons, there’s only one dedicated just to hair color—the new color café. The brainchild of Kim Sclafani, former color director at Hopscotch and an educator for L’Oreal, this boutique hair studio focuses on helping clients find the perfect hue. “It’s all about picking the color that’s best for that person, taking into consideration eye color and skin tone,” says Kim, who does a fifteen-minute personal consultation with every new client. Kim and her team of colorists specialize in Balayage, a free-form, hand-painted hair color that gives the effect of sun-kissed highlights, customized to the individual; Kim has traveled around the country to teach this L’Oreal technique to other professionals. The Color Café team is also up on the latest in corrective color and trends like “sombre,” the popular ombre with a more subtle effect. Not sure how to describe the look you want? You can check out the Pinterest boards on the salon’s iPads to see inspiration for blondes, brunettes and redheads and then share your favorite look with one of the colorists. The salon, located one block from Greenwich Avenue with dedicated parking, is the only one in Connecticut to carry Philip Kingsley product. A blow-dry is included with every color service. Says Kim, “everybody leaves here with perfectly finished hair.”
