MIAMI — Toupy, a 34-year-old Parisian women’s wear collection, has partnered with a U.S. distributor.
Though carried by 500 accounts in 25 countries, Italy being one of the largest customer bases outside of France, the family-owned business founded by David and Anna Harari had little North American presence. Leslie Benitah, a distant relative who grew up in Paris’ 16th arrondissement and relocated to Miami, where she co-owns Sebastien James multibrand boutiques in Aventura and the Design District, introduced the line’s signature silk separates in colorblocking, coquettish prints and seasonal solids to the South Florida market.
