Tucked away like my secret stash…. the ground level of the Mazza Gallerie, DC, CLOSERTHANTHISTOCHEVYCHASE cloisters a delightful boutique literally packed with some of fashion’s best labels.
Can’t make it to Jeffrey New York? Maxfields’ LA? Try TABANDEH .
Sporting some of the hardest to procure labels for a small venue: Rick Owens, Nulle, Shelly Litvak, Stephen Webster, Nigel Preston, Jamin Puech, (and, the list goes on….) Tabandeh has a warren of treasures that seem to be constantly renewed. Such a pleasure to find this Fountain of Fashion (the one for Youth is in the Basement of the Mall of the Emirates…) outside of the major Hubs.
Sahba, Tabandeh’s son, is a talented designer in his own right—(see picture with Karl Lagerfeld, no less…) and is a driving force behind some of the Boutique’s couture collections.
Samira, Tabandeh’s daughter, is the designer of GAS jewelry, L.A. –her own creations remind us of those updated tahitian pearl confections by Wu that are sold for $10K plus (pearl on a ribbon) at Maxfields. Lanvin, eat your Heart out.
TABANDEH also stocks a specialty line of bags reminiscent of Alexandra Knight in exotic skins with a stylish edge: Nina ROSEN. Nina creates a variety of custom handbags and accessories with a twist—you can afford them without consulting your private banker.
Clothing, Jewelry, Accessories…..Tabandeh SHOULD HAVE YOUR NUMBER (if not….here’s hers: 202-244-0777–ask for Martine).
