2021 Best Blast From the Past


For 33 years, Dava Muramatsu held court on Newbury Street at her beloved apparel and home-accessories boutique, Matsu. After a seven-year hiatus, she’s back, this time in a dark-forest-green-painted, incense-burning, music-flowing space on Charles Street, and her signature multi-sensory style is stronger than ever. Treat yourself to perfectly distressed jeans, ethereal tutus, and diaphanous cashmere sweaters from designers like Louiza Babouryan and Ottotredici. Among the bounty is also her own jewelry line, Nymph Jewels, a gemstone-rich collection including citrine chokers and pink sapphire earrings. Welcome back, indeed.
