Paris-based fashion house Gérard Darel has transcended the Atlantic with the opening of its Soho boutique. The store is the first stand-alone Gérard Darel location in the United States, with another soon to arrive in Los Angeles. The label includes a full range of women’s ready-to-wear handbags, shoes and accessories with sophisticated, feminine elegance. Gérard Darel utilizes fine fabrics and contemporary tailoring to match a variety of silhouettes and tastes, so shoppers can find polished head-to-toe looks for both the swanky boardroom and the cozy coffee-shop. It’s no surprise that the brand has a devoted celebrity following: Angelina Jolie, Olivia Palermo and Halle Berry sport the suave styles. Nestled in the heart of the Soho shopping district, the new space exudes Parisian chicness infused with a downtown New York aesthetic. 145 Spring St.
