Inside Look: Our Fave Downtown Shop Goes Uptown

It's official, the UES is becoming cool — and we're not just talkin' Schiaparelli exhibits and to-die-for brownstones. Between outposts of the city's trendiest restaurants (look out for the Meatball Shop this winter!), and the brand-new Proenza Schouler boutique, it seems NYC's It factor is reaching above 14th Street. Now, the 'hood can add another notch in its style belt with Otte's newest boutique.
Third Avenue shoppers will be able to stock up on duds from the likes of Acne, Alexander Wang, Isabel Marant, and rag & bone (to name a few), which means downtown style is now very much a city-wide luxury. We got our hands on pics of the store, so you can check out the goods without having to use your Metro Card. But, we suggest a little trip for some in-person browsing — you just might like what you see.
