Louis Boston

When Debi Greenberg moved Louis from the Back Bay to Fan Pier, skeptics said her chic clientele wouldn’t follow. They did. They come for blazers, sleek bags, and statement jewelry from Marni, Proenza Schouler, and Balenciaga, but also to discover rising style stars from around the world, expertly vetted by Greenberg (British wunderkind Thomas Tait is a recent addition). And for those of us who can’t make daily trips to the waterfront, Louis now has a 200-square-foot accessories store inside the Mandarin Oriental.
