We're kind of in awe of Evelyne Aikman and Elinor Diamond. The extremely talented designers/owners of Eel & Ermine have wowed us time and again with their clever use of prints, original patterns and perfect fits.

Now, we can't wait to get a glimpse into their new Mission design center. Yep, after running their successful Laurel Heights boutique, the duo is all packed up and re-opening this April with a trendy new zip code. 

As if the stunning Summer/Fall collection (above) wasn't enough of a lure, the in-store experience also offers mimosas, freshly baked delights, and canine-friendly treats always at the ready.
