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. When asked about being on a side street versus the avenue, Komoroff shared that in addition to the drastic difference in rent, “I really didn’t want to be on the main street. This store is how my clothes are and how I am — a little off!”
