From its modest launch as a women's clothing store in 2002, Akira has expanded to more than 10 retail locations and now stocks a full line of gender-inclusive fashions from well-known men’s and women’s designers. The friendly, trend-conscious team at Akira can help vestment-seekers navigate the hefty stock of designer dresses, jackets, and denim from brands such as True Religion, Hugo Boss, and Diesel. Glissade into pumps from an arsenal of popular solers such as Poetic License and Michael Kors, or slip your toe farms into a pair of retro tennis shoes from New Balance or PF Flyers to impress judgmental street grates. Sport your jaunty new Goorin Bros. hat on an angle to confuse people about the levelness of the floor, or go incognito and shun the paparazzi in a pair of Tom Ford sunglasses. Akira also offers casual attire for businessbeings and professional magicians seeking refuge from the hectic suit-and-cloak-heavy workweek.
