Finally, a bit of British holiday in the heart of New York City! Heidi Klein started in London in 2002 with a vacation-centric store. The founders, Heidi Gosman and Penny Klein both appreciated how difficult it was to shop for holiday essentials and a well fitting swim suit. The vision of the company is to "Help women look fantastic and to get organized before a holiday."
The boutique, which has opened on the Upper East Side in NYC is reminiscent of a relaxed, calm and chic high-end vacation spot. The walls are white and accented with beautiful sheer white curtains which make you feel like you are in a cabana. They sell: women's swimwear, beach cover-ups, kaftans, flip flops, tops, sarongs, hats, sunglasses, bags as well as pieces for men and children.

There are several styles of bathing suits available such as: bikinis, one pieces, tankinis and maternity suits. There are also two fabulous mix and match lines called Essentials and Provence which we all know is great for those of us who don't have perfect proportions! What I love about the suits is that they provide full coverage in the rear, but are still quite posh and sexy.
The suits are available in bold and fun prints as well as nautical stripes and classical colors. And if you are shopping for something other than the Heidi Klein Private Label, you can also browse items from: Vilebrequin, Eres, and Melissa Odabash. The boutique also sells the brand's own candles for $54, a whipped moisturizer for $48 and a sea salt scrub for $45.
