Welcome Pair Wine & Cheese and Anne Willi!

We are very pleased to welcome two new stores to Atlantic Avenue: Pair Wine & Cheese in Cobble Hill and Anne Willi in Boerum Hill.

Pair Wine and Cheese is located at 140 Atlantic Avenue in the Cobble Hill neighborhood between Henry and Clinton Streets. They specialize in the highest quality cheeses and charcuterie from around the world. Nothing beats their cozy atmosphere, fine wines, and their inviting assortment of cheese-inspired small plates.

Anne Willi‘s new clothing shop is located at 362 Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill between Hoyt and Bond Streets.

Anne’s very distinctive style was described as follows by the artist Valérie Mréjen: Anne creates long, elegant, feminine silhouettes, often uses fabrics for men’s suits for split skirts, or decolletés with ribbons crossed, tied or buttoned… Her simple, subtle style does not mean there’s only one way to wear her clothes. The woolen collar transforms into a stovepipe hat! A cachemire scarf turns an overcoat into evening dress!
She allows each customer to interpret or adapt the garment according to her mood, and likes to offer several versions: reversibles in two colors, leather straps which can be tied in a 1000 ways.

Anne Willi is Franco-Swiss and grew up in Paris. At the end of her studies in fashion design she created her first collection under the name: Anne Shimon. In 1998, she was the first designer to invest in Rue Keller, in the 10th arrondissement in Paris, opening a boutique-atelier with her name Anne Willi. In 2003 the business expanded and Anne opened her independent workshop next to the boutique. At this point Anne began exporting her clothes to sharp multi-brand shops around the world.
In 2010, the Parisian brand opened a new shop on the other side of the Seine, rue de l’Odeon, in the Saint Germain des Près neighborhood.
In 2013 Anne Willi opened a pop-up shop in the neighborhood of Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. After a warm welcome to the city, a permanent shop was established in February 2015 on Atlantic Avenue.
