Here we have Cream New York, a newcomer to the Upper East Side boutique scene. The store's focus is on high-end womenswear; racks are stocked with pieces from Tracey Feith, Ports 1961, Alessandro dell’Acqua, Antik Batik, Anna Sui, Miguelina and Graham & Spencer. The two-week-old shop hasn't received much press yet, but from the brands offered it seems perfectly suited for the neighborhood. Owner Raquel Trout found inspiration for Cream in a relaxing trip to St. Bart’s—something those UES ladies can certainly relate to.
