NEW YORK -- Wathne has grabbed a prominent site on 57th Street for its first retail store.

The classic collection of fashion and accessories, inspired by riding, angling, skiing and hunting, will be housed in a 1,500-square-foot unit at 4 West 57th St.

It is set to open in early November, the company said.

Wathne plans to open more stores in the U.S., and expand into Asia, a spokeswoman said. She did not specify locations.

The collection is currently only available through its catalog, and I. Magnin stores in Beverly Hills, San Francisco and Phoenix. Bloomingdale's carries the accessories.

The new store, decorated with outdoor themes, was designed by Steven Miller Siegal. The clothing is designed by three Icelandic sisters, Thorunn, Berge and Soffia Wathne, who have a passion for sports.

Prices range from $95 for scarves to $1,395 for a microfiber anorak with a detachable fur collar.
