Concierge.com's insider take:
The bad boy of French fashion, Gaspard Yurkievich has been roughing up pretty girls (and boys) since 1995. In his grittily glamorous boutique, all steel and wood, in the fashionable Third, his clothes are a torqued marriage of Vivienne Westwood and Anna Karina—like tough-angled jackets in damask, and fine-knit stockings with decorative spiders peeking out of their webs. Clients include dealers from the concentration of avant-garde art galleries nearby, who understand that even grown-ups want to be punky sometimes.
Open Tuesdays through Saturdays 11 am to 7 pm.
