Young designer Annie Havlicek just wrapped up a sample sale at 154 Orchard Street on the Lower East Side, and now the Cut reports that she's planning to move into the space permanently. Havlicek, who went to Parsons and interned with Michael Kors, decided to open a boutique after her fall 2009 line (her first full collection) took off. The shop, which will also carry Digby & Iona jewelry and custom Osborn shoes, opens May 15. Check out her sweet, retro spring/summer collection in the Cut's slideshow—it's all very sheer and girly-romantic and makes us feel extremely ready for warm weather.
