The style staples for a ‘Frankie girl’ are a blazer, white shirt and khaki pants, which coincidentally is the outfit du jour of owner Gaëlle Drevet. Frankie Shop NYC (and now Paris) are go-to spots for everyday pieces as effortless as they are economical. The boutique mixes high-end names like Rachel Comey and Karen Walker with emerging designers from around the globe, rendering its Downtown-meets-Parisienne vibe accessible to all. With 85K followers and counting @thefrankieshop, Gaëlle attests that social media is fundamental to the shop’s success. Her artful curation, both in store and on Instagram, is straight out of a Wes Anderson film. Bookish blazers, cheeky tees and slip-ons galore fill the shop; all the requisites for a Margot Tenenbaum of the millennial era. Step into her pretty little shop in LES and meet the original Frankie girl.
