Shopping mecca

December 26, 2019

Retail doyenne Rita Sayegh has opened Libertine, a new retail space offering curated gifts, personal care items, fragrance and accessories at 2163 Cole Street in Birmingham’s Rail District. Libertine is a specialty gift shop inside women’s clothing store Milieu, owned by Denise Howard, and connected to Arkitektura. Sayegh, former creative director of Mills Pharmacy + Apothecary and co-proprietor of Sabine at The Siren Hotel in downtown Detroit, said, “I love being able to bring unique, hard-to-find products from all over the world to Michigan. Opening Libertine is a wonderful reflection of my work over the past decade, and I am thrilled to share my favorite brands with customers.” Sayegh said she hand picks every item, which includes items from Ortigia Sicilia, Photogenics + Co., Ellis Faas, Coreterno, and others. Libertine was designed with a focus on personal care items, fragrance, women’s and men’s accessories, and specialty gifts, which she said is a synergistic pairing with Milieu, with its global focus on designer fashion and accessories. The two businesses look forward to creating a unique experience for customers to shop each store concept. The stores are open seven days a week.
