Pachute — 57 West 84th Street

For a shop modeled after her own life, owner Sharone Komoroff chose the Hebrew name, which means “simple.” This is also the guiding principle of her boutique that sells beautiful, minimalist women’s clothing. Other than a few furnishings, the space is open and bright, highlighting the craftsmanship of the clothing and accessories.

This store is how my clothes are and how I am — a little off!”
