NEW YORK — JUNE 29, 2001

Wathne, the luxury outdoor and equestrian-related apparel and accessory store at 4 West 57th Street — one of the fanciest shops in town — has shut down.
Moving into the 1,400-square-foot space is Smythson of Bond Street, a high-end stationer from London.
Wathne is operated by three sisters from Iceland — Thorunn, Berge and Soffia Wathne — who have a passion for sports. They spent heavily to open the site at the end of 1993, giving it a fireplace with a hand carved limestone mantel, an overstuffed leather couch, a chandelier made of antlers, Venetian plaster walls and moldings, pearwood display cases and a French limestone floor.
At one time, the store sold such items as sterling-silver trout-shaped belt buckles, priced at $360; suede quilted hunting jackets, $1,585, and cavalry twill riding jackets, $695. Wathne is also known for its angling gear, which includes salmon flies ($25), thigh waders ($155) and oilcloth vests ($350).
