Made in Italy” means more than just words on a tag for clothing brand Peserico. Though the business has evolved from its humble beginnings in a workshop in 1960s Vincenza, the dedication to quality and exclusive Italian production are what define the luxury womenswear label and family operation (founder Maria Peserico’s son, Riccardo Peruffo, is the current CEO). The designs are classic, a mix of expertly tailored suit separates, outerwear (including chic puffer coats), and sweaters as well as accessories and leather footwear. In a mostly neutral palette of calming colors—there are also pops of red and pink among the newer pieces—the overall aesthetic is timeless and sophisticated. As for its location, a Greenwich Avenue address seemed a perfect fit for Peruffo, who chose our town as it “very much reflects the environment in which the company is located; surrounded by greenery, very quiet and residential, but just as close to the big cities like Milan or New York.” And the store is a true escape worth discovering, even if just ducking in from the cold and being lulled by the warmth of wool and cashmere inside. 279 Greenwich Ave., 203-869-7999, peserico.it
