Our Pas De Deux Press Preview

Paul Birardi and Eddy Chai (brother to designer Richard Chai) are on a roll--before we even had the chance to check out their newest shop opening, the pair launched an e-commerce site and threw one of the most designer-clad parties to occur this season. Well, just to backtrack a bit, late last week we popped over to their new shop Pas de Deux, dedicated (finally, finally, finally) to just women. To explain our enthusiasm one must understand the Odin-culture in New York. Odin is, has been for some time, the store where girls who know how to dress take their boyfriends, fiances, husbands, so that they too, can dress. The go-to destination for every fashion forward scenester and no-nonsense guy's guy, Odin has long been a downtown retail landmark for all walks of male fashionista. So, when they opened the doors to their small but beautiful women's shop we were more than curious what lay, ahem, in store.

To put it simply the selection is well edited without being untrue to the designer's and their collections. This isn't the kind of place, in other words, where you'll find a blouse from one designer squashed next to a pair of trousers from another. However comprehensive are their buys, and small the space, there is still a nice mix of recognizable names and lesser known brands and a distinct nod to a woman's boyish sensibilities--no doubt inspired by Odin. Pas de Deux is a place for the girlfriends, fiances, wives to finally shop for themselves and that, in the end, is all we could ever hope for. 

Odin's e-commerce site will soon include women's items and we'll be sure to report on that when the time comes, until then, if in New York, check out Pas de Deux for Repetto, Karen Walker, Loeffler Randall, Clu, Phillip Crangi, Boyy and much, much more.
