This season, residents will have a new place on Worth Avenue to shop for hand-crafted and vintage accessories.
Quintessentials (QE) opens its boutique in Via Amore on Oct. 1, offering sterling-silver artisan-created bracelets, pendants, rings, necklaces, buckles and leather straps. The brand refers to its accessories as “sculptural in image, sensuous in feel.”
The opening apparel collection is from the French-based Saint-James Co., known for its knitted tops featuring nautical seashore lines. Quintessentials is the first retail venture for owner Stephen Anfang. It’s an expression of his interest in sculpture, architecture and classic clothing and accessories, according to the brand’s news release announcing the opening.
