Hello, Lover! Rib & Rhein’s Newest Addition…

Rib and Rhein show lover

As local fashion fans know, Rib & Rhein opened in Newport in 2008, but this past summer, owners Erin and Thomas Ribeiro ceremoniously cut the ribbon to their new second floor for a combined 4000 sq. ft. of luxury retail space. Among other gems, the additions include the “Shoe Lovers Salon,” with each pair chosen specifically for the discerning Newport shopper.

Years ago, I wrote a story on Newport for Daily Candy describing the shop as a place where “Tribeca and St. Barths collide,” and it still rings true. Featured designers for men and women at Rib & Rhein include Marc Jacobs, Psycho Bunny, Etro, ISSA, Roberto Cavalli, Victoria Beckham, Turnbull & Asser, and more. The couple say they plan to add even more coveted lines including Prada, Isabel Marant, Marni, Givenchy, Tom Ford Beauty, YSL beauty, Gucci, Versace, Christopher Kane, The Row, St. Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Victor & Rolf, D Squared, Christian Louboutin, and Hermes. The boutique is located at 86 William Street in Newport.

D.S.Dundee Debuts in Newport

What a glorious Indian summer weekend Newport and much of the East Coast is enjoying! Even though fingers are crossed the perfect weather lasts, fall is around the corner, and some amazing pieces I’m finding around town makes the season transition exciting. Erin and Thomas Ribeiro at Rib & Rhein are ecstatic about welcoming exclusive London-based luxury design-driven menswear line D.S.Dundee. The designer is known for using the best fabrics—corduroy, Aran knits, tartan—on classic pieces. It’s not inexpensive, but D.S.Dundee produces the kind of investment pieces that will be timeless. “It’s just simply fabulous and we have it before it gets really huge,” Thomas tells me. If you’re going by the William Street shop, check out the ticket pocket jacket in the window—its fine!

Rib & Rhein is located at 86 William Street in  Newport, (401) 619-5767
