We met Elsa Pack and her daughter Penelope through about a year ago when they started bringing in items from Elsa’s exquisite wardrobe. Elsa herself could work a silk headscarf like we’ve never seen and exhibited a grace and strength we can only strive to achieve one day. Elsa devoured fashion and collected both vintage and designer through her decades in and around DC. We’re honored to have met her and are so sad to hear that she has passed from cancer. She was such a force that we had no idea how bad her illness was during her numerous visits to our shop. We’re lucky to be able to pass along some of her beautiful collection through the coming months and to share their special provenance with our customers.
Here are some pics from vintage Elsa and a more recent photo. We are still in awe.
