“Raging Bull” in the Window at House of Savoia

Posted on: January 26th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

House of Savoia opened at 147 Essex Street in the fall of 2009, and has since become an interesting fixture in the neighborhood boutique scene. The store peddles dapper threads with a modern take on the hepcat-like fashions of the late 1930s. And there’s an over-the-top cool factor. One need only scope out the interesting collection of goodies in the window display (e.g. hats, guitar, bike, jackets).
