jackson square shopping
If hard-to-find labels from emerging and cult favorite European designers sounds like a fine reason to spend all day in a dressing room, you’re going to want to carve out time to visit Jackson Square’s latest retail destination. Occupying an airy space with white walls and dark wood floors befitting an urban gallery, La Boutique, l’Art et la Mode delivers a handpicked selection of women’s apparel and accessories that reflects owner Carole Harari’s love for inventive, yet wearable fashion from France, Germany and Switzerland.
But the shop isn’t just about fashion.
In today’s zero-to-fame-in-a-heartbeat media landscape, it is a rare time indeed in any fashion label’s life when it is simultaneously well-known enough to be drooled over by the elite fashion press and coveted by celebrity-slash-socialites bound for red carpet events, but yet still not quite an easily-recognized name among mainstream consumers (outside of those pouring over fashion glossies and blogs, of course).
