NEW YORK — “There is something about the necklace on the skin,” Marie-Hélène de Taillac said, carefully hooking one of her new pieces, a 22-karat gold and diamond lace necklace, around her neck.
The designer, who has split her time between Paris and Jaipur, India since launching her namesake line in 1996, is in town to open her first boutique. The 270-square-foot shop, located at 20 East 69th Street, opens Saturday. It is de Taillac’s third freestanding door and first in the United States, joining units that opened in Tokyo and Paris in 2003 and 2004, respectively.
