Rainy Days and Mondays (through Saturdays):
The newly opened Miu Miu store (in the space that was formerly known as Jenny) which came upon the scene with a minimum of fanfare and publicity, is located at 831 Madison Avenue, between 69th and 70th streets. Filling the windows, shelves, and racks, are fall/winter items that will have you praying for rain. Well, almost. The rainy day inspired waxed cotton separates that range in price from about $600 to $800 are water repellent though not completely waterproof. But for those who have long dreamed of rubber boots that are chic and elegant, their high heeled patent leather galoshes - which sell for $395, and available in black, beige, or red - should do the trick (see photo above). Also perfect for rainy days are the brimmed patent leather rain hats, available in black and red ($215).
Another sure best seller, and one that will probably grace many of the fashion flock, is the very YSL inspired pussycat bow blouse, in purple chiffon ($680). The store is open from Monday through Saturday...it is closed on Sunday.
