Brand new Kiton store to open at Saks - Page 2

post #16 of 28
I think the slickness of the store is at odds with Kiton's relaxed, artisanal brand image.

I didn't realize that was their image anymore. Anyway, I like the design of the house branding tag for Saks. It is much better than the Niemans version.

I wonder if the wood is real or fake.

They do all those black-and-white print ads that show Kiton workers and execs just standing around or describe how the making of a Kiton suit is special.

Nice. The fact that they threw in a tie is cool - Kiton ties are something like $225 now.

Where's this new Kiton store? I don't remember seeing any signs of construction at Saks men's floor.

Maybe he just read Allen's thread where the tailors corroborated the hours.

It occupies the space used to house Spano, Spano moves to a smaller space near the Brioni shop.

The place in Saks looks nice. They have ties displayed on that oval wood surface.

Thanks for the article.

Has anyone recently visited the Kiton boutique at SFA? How is it?
post #28 of 28
Yep, on my way there later today. Not only is it a spectacular display of a small but very well edited selection,, but the occasional sales (40% off suit for example) and their Kiton Black Label suits and ties are really something special. Dont think kiton store ever has sales, so i try to watch saks kiton stuff closely. Getting the new black label suit tailored today, hopefully!
