Spotlight-dappled display tables and fully loaded shelves invite visitors to peruse Kicks' collection of designer brands as the store's fashion gurus aid with selections. Bosom Buddy evening clutches ($55) flock toward vacant palms and Born Crown Alcala sandals ($59.97) grace feet with their open-toe, ankle-wrap charm in an array of styles, including metallic leather for better FM reception. With their hand-made linings and decorative toecap, French Sole flats ($155) sheath feet in comfortable, stylish elegance. Gingerly stretching around soles, Kate Spade satin slippers ($75) spruce up sidewalk sojourns with a whimsical bloom of white petals, and an M Z Wallace canvas tote ($198) distracts admirers with bands of eye-catching sequins while its honeycombed pockets shelter everything from cell phones to freshly chiseled replicas of the Rosetta Stone.
Spotlight-dappled display tables and fully loaded shelves invite visitors to peruse Kicks' collection of designer brands as the store's fashion gurus aid with selections. They take great care to make sure that their clients find fashionable wears from head to toe, with the latter finding stylish homes in shoes from brands such as Cole Haan, Donald J Pliner, and French Soles. The fashion gurus’ finely tuned eyes help shoppers make decisions on form-fitting Fabrizio Gianni jeans, topped with Velvet or Before + Again tees and finished off with Barbour jackets and a smattering of applause. Handbags and jewelry drape across wrists or over shoulders, and scarves and nail polishes accent newly formed outfits.
