Ready for some technical cashmere, Coconut Grove?! Kit + Ace has officially opened at the corner of Main Highway and Grand Ave., ready to bring you all the basic staples that it's known (and loved) for.
This is Kit+Ace's second Miami location, as its first opened in Wynwood about a month ago. Like that location, this one is filled with the softest cashmere tees that don't actually feel like cashmere, the finest cashmere sweaters that feel as good as they sound, and the best fitting trousers and pants even a curvy girl (or guy) could own. Here, too, you'll find loungewear (the brand has close ties to the Lululemon fam, after all), plus accessories, interesting blouses, and more.
Like every Kit + Ace location, this one is accentuated with plenty of hyper-local elements, The brand's signature Supper Club table in the center of the room was designed by Jessica Acosta Rubio at Design Pub, and will be used for Kit + Ace's monthly dine-ins with some of the city's top creatives. The fancy lighting fixtures you see around the store were also designed by a Design Pub colleague, Brookhart Jonquil, and the iconic photograph of a Miami marina on the wall, titled Boats Beneath A Miami Sky were photographed by Alejandro Veliz. The colorful artwork at Kit + Ace's in-store gallery, Seasons, is by Johnny Robles.
It's perfect for refined creatives and serious folks alike, so stop by for your next everyday staples.
