Two of Belle's crazy-colorful handmade totes ($135 each) from Colombia. We’re obsessed with the tassels.
We had to restrain ourselves from buying Clic’s linen scarves ($48 each) in every color (they’re designed by Clic owner Christiane Celle).
It?s extremely rare to walk into a shop and want to buy everything. But that?s exactly how we felt upon entering Belle Boutique in Berkeley.
After relocating from New York City, owner Polly Simmons--who worked for more than a decade at Calypso and more recently at Clic--says she couldn?t find some of her favorite brands on the West Coast. Thus, Belle was born.
The small loft above Rue Atelier is jam-packed with an eclectic mix of elegant yet effortless clothing and accessories that reflect Simmons?s style as well as her newfound respect for the NorCal climate (translation: lots of sumptuous scarves and sweaters). She carries wardrobe staples like Marika Charles tops and Foley + Corinna bags, plus global finds like luxurious knits from Animana and handwoven Colombian totes.
You don?t have to take our word for it--just look at what?s in store.
