The Overview

Leave any preconceptions of Asian minimalism at the door of this long-time favorite among the city's fashionistas. Located in a gracious two-story colonial mansion complete with wrought-iron chandeliers and a spiral staircase, this boutique houses the exuberant, über-feminine line of owner Romyda Keth, a Parisian-raised designer who ran a successful boutique in the French capital before returning to her native Cambodia in the early 1990's.

Keth works in a broad spectrum of styles and colors, from slinky satin-and-lace cocktail dresses to billowing organza skirts topped with fitted strapless bodices; many of her designs include detailed hand-sewn embroidery. Each room in the house is dedicated to a different range of colors; matching shoes, jewelry and bags help customers create the perfect outfit. There's also a selection of adorable sundresses for girls and a bespoke service for prospective brides.
