Shop owners Erin and Thomas Ribeiro emblazoned “anglo-indo-waspy” on their boutique walls, and they take this declaration of style to heart, bringing brands like Carven, Charlotte Olympia, and The Row to the city’s Yacht Club set.

Why: Brands like ETRO, Marc Jacobs, and Turnbull & Asser are represented at this boutique opened in 2008 by husband-and-wife team Thomas and Erin Riberio.
