They say there’s no place like home. Especially when your casa happens to be an airy and warm West Village townhouse.
Our proof: the new digs of handbag designer Khirma Eliazov.
We first crushed on her exotic, mixed-texture pouches, clutches, and totes in 2009. Fast-forward three years and we’re smitten with Eliazov’s sleek yet casual shop decorated with vintage furniture, travel souvenirs (Indian mirrors, record player), and plush purple carpets.
Scoop up the latest bags in blues, oranges, and oxblood, including limited-edition box clutches with bejeweled good luck charm closures inspired by a trip to Bhutan.
The former freelance accessories editor also stocks friends’ collections, including knitwear and coats by Paris-based, Georgia-born designer Irakli Nasidze and zodiac rings by Moscow jeweler Queensbee. KBL eyewear, Cut25 by Yigal Azrouel, Theodora & Callum scarves, and baubles from La Soula and Kelsey Quan round out the selection.
As for that tail-wagging ball of fluff/shop pup named Oliver?
We checked. You can’t take him home.
