When it comes to openings (Topshop Beantown!) and closings (Boston Globe forever!), we’ve wished upon many a star and flaming birthday cake.
Here’s one that was worth a wayward eyelash: Pinkyotto has come to Boston.
The three-year-old fashion import opens its only shop outside of NY on Newbury Street today. The little boutique stocks its own vintage-inspired designs — the work of creative director and Pratt grad Ryo Liu.
Each piece has a relaxed yet super-stylized look and feel (think chic Parisian meets kick-ass anime). We love the Popeye dress (Olive Oyl is a sexy beast) and the abstract Paint frock.
The store cuts only a few sizes of every item, so when it’s gone, it’s gone. And since almost everything is under $200, you run the risk of missing out on the quickly changing inventory.
But, you know, think positive.
Pinkyotto, 156 Newbury Street (617-236-1238 or pinkyotto.com).
