Just a skosh more than a month after its Santana Row opening, the Canadian retailer Kit and Ace christened its Hayes Street location. That makes store number five in Northern Cali (Cow Hollow, Corte Madera and Walnut Creek locations round out the quintet). Clearly, the purveyor of contemporary luxe apparel and accessories for women and men is smitten with us. And we're undeniably big fans of machine-washable cashmere round these parts.
Now about K+A's newest bebe located at 371 Hayes Street: Like its sibling on Fillmore Street, this boutique is light and bright, and easy to shop—and also significantly bigger at 2,500 square feet. And as is tradition for the brand, the décor is punctuated by cool pieces by local designers and artisans. A few of our favorites include the supper club table by Oakland-based Aleksandra Zee; supper club benches by SF-based Yvonne Mouser, photography by SF-er David Leong and feature lighting by Oakland-based (and woman-owned) Hammers and Heels.
