Icon Style
Flickr Pool Picks

Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor—those are the some of the icons of style that owner Lara Kornbluh wants to evoke in her side-street shop Icon Style, 104 W. 70th St. [Bway/Col] 212.799.0029

They carry jewelry from the 19th century to the 1980s displayed in wood and glass apothecary cabinets that were left from the pharmacy previously on the site. It is a felicitous combination.

Ms. Kornbluh, who has been in the business for 20 years, says, "We focus on the fashion part of the antique and vintage business, working with collectors, lovers of vintage style, as well as stylists and entertainment people. I adore finding a client the perfect look and styling them from head to toe. My personal passion is for serpent jewelry and all things Egyptian Revival, so you will always find a dedicated display of these works. Art Deco Czech glass is another of my specialties — a marvelous Czech glass festoon necklace certainly makes me happy."

The store also has a small selection of clothing, home furnishings and accessories.

Those style icons are no longer with us. Try on the just-so necklace, earrings, a handbag, a brooch or bracelet, though, and see if there isn't a connection.
