After nearly 30 years in an intimate boutique across from SMU, the owners of Cotton Island decided to expand their eclectic lineup of women's clothing from small, progressive designers, opening a second location in Plano and cutting the virtual ribbon on an online store. At all locations, they welcome women of every age and fashion proclivity to update their wardrobes with vibrant, seasonal apparel.
Cotton Island's inventory has made the shop a darling of local press, even garnering a feature in D Magazine. Racks hoist vintage-inspired threads and limited-run articles from smaller indie labels, such as JWLA, Free People, Michael Stars, Splendid, Ella Moss, and Lucky Brand. Designer denim by 7 For All Mankind, Miss Me, and Citizens of Humanity, and Current Elliot pair easily with accessories from Kendra Scott, Chan Lu, and Big Buddha, or a multifarious collection of shoes cobbled by the likes of Bernardo, Yellow Box, TOMs, Sam Edelman, Steve Madden, and the village farrier.
