“If you are anywhere near Dumbo, you must stop into this store. I was on the prowl for the perfect white button down when I walked into Yesaet and discovered the Taitu. It’s a beautifully fitted button down in a gorgeously distinct japanese cotton plisse, with all gold buttons. I now also own it in the black sheer, and plan to get every color by the time I’m done! All her pieces are amazingly versatile, can be dressed up or down. I haven’t gone on a trip - business or pleasure- without one of her pieces… An absolute Brooklyn treasure.”
