On bustling Atlantic Ave is theBANQUET, a bright and airy boutique owned by and featuring two designers whose complementary collections are mixed with a few well-edited vintage finds. Jewelry designer Pamela Johnston and women’s wear designer Miranda Bennett are both owners and designers and created a shop that combines their two styles.
The Miranda Bennett women’s wear collection is feminine and polished and made of all natural silks and cottons. Each piece has surprising details with raw silk edges, hidden pockets, and unique color combinations. Prices range from $65-$500+ with a variety of options from a floor-length dress to a pleated tank. Favorites include an incredibly versatile paper bag skirt for $215 and an easy-to-wear silk color block dress for $345.
Pamela Johnston’s Plume jewelry line is just as exquisite, with unique details in an array of materials and styles. With many pieces under a $100 and ranging up to $595, it is easy to find a statement necklace, cocktail ring, or timeless earrings. These innovative pieces include an entwined ribbon-and-wood necklace and stackable rings and bracelets. Favorites are easily the black diamond stud earrings for $595 and the eye-catching accordion ribbing necklace for $90.
While visiting you are likely to run into the friendly and helpful designers themselves, making TheBANQUET a definite must-stop for unique local designs that would be instant favorites in any wardrobe.
