New Store News: OGGI 5
Oggi 5 brings European luxury to Greenwich Avenue
Oggi 5, a new Greenwich Avenue boutique, houses a highly curated collection of designer brands from Milan and Paris. Under the direction of owner Oliver Goureau, whose eponymous label is also represented, the boutique brings elusive European brands to Fairfield County with exclusive local distribution of Milanese designer Louisa Spagnoli and French favorite, Toupy.
Louisa Spagnoli’s well-established line is available throughout Europe and coveted for its well-cut separates. Hallmarks of the brand include high quality wools and silks with beautifully finished details – scarf-print lined jackets, hand-finished construction, and fashion-forward hues. Established in the 1920’s the brand has built a cult-like following in Europe – even Kate Middleton is a fan.
French fashion brand Toupy epitomizes the young, modern international woman. Handmade in Paris, Toupy’s effortless silk separates are cut with laser-like precision and effortlessly blend into almost any woman’s wardrobe. Also from Paris, colorful floral print jeans from Frime are cut with a mid-rise fit to flatter all body types.
Owner Oliver Goureau’s lifelong career in retail, both in Europe and in the U.S., has sharpened his ability to understand the global, cosmopolitan woman. In his own private label line of Italian made separates, he combines classic shapes with modern interpretation. Working with organic modal cotton, wool, and silk, he blends ultra-flattering cuts with feminine details to create sophisticated pieces that are on-trend without being overtly trendy.
What trip to Italy would be complete without a visit to the masterful leatherworking shops that line the avenues of Milan and Florence? Taking cues from European accessory designers, a line of Italian made leather handbags in supple leathers line the shelves. Pebbled leather bucket bags in pastel pink and blue, ladylike top-handle bags, and icon-inspired chain handle bags boast couture construction and flawless quality.
