Shop Watch: Five Story Opens

May 07, 2012 | by -JESSICA FERRI | Homepage

Father and daughter team Fred and Claire Ditzenfeld have opened a beautiful boutique in a classic Manhattan townhouse at 18 East 69th Street. Mr. Ditzenfeld serves as the head of Luxury Accessories International, and Ms. Ditzenfeld has worked in galleries all over the city.

Five Story features two and a half floors of luxury men's and women's apparel, accessories, jewelry, and shoes along with a section for kids and home goods. The store has a decidedly cozy vibe, designed by Ryan Korban, who brought in an iron-balustrade that leads from the garden level to the second floor.

Ms. Ditzenfeld was inspired by the beautiful townhouse to curate a collection that focuses on New York glamour. The opening reception featured cocktails and snacks by Mr. Chow with DJ sets by Cleo Le Tan and appearances from some of fashion's biggest names, like photographer Ellen von Unwerth, model Anja Rubik, and girl about town Annabelle Dexter Jones. 18 East 69th St., 212-288-1338
