Just shy of its third birthday, the Nicole Kwon Concept Store has built a loyal – some might say obsessed – fan base since opening in November of 2012. Inside her Uptown Dallas boutique, the owner of the same name stocks a curated, decidedly NYC-leaning selection of clothing and accessories. Think A.L.C., Rachel Comey, and LaMarque. Awards, as in D Magazine’s Best of Big D, have come on a regular basis over the last three years, as have trendsetting finds from Kwon’s keen eye. Her early prediction of the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag’s blockbuster success, for example, bordered on ESP. Today, she’ll tune that radar just for us. Take note, because an interview with this proprietress is a rare commodity, indeed. Rachel Comey’s wide leg Legion Pants. “At Fashion Week, the ‘70s were in full swing,” she explains. “The modern woman needs to feel comfortable with her shape, and these pants emphasis the waist while being quite flattering.” Top the pant with a new coat by IRO. Our expert points to the Dafny in Burgundy as a current best seller, noting, “The shearling lining is beautiful, and the color is so rich. I don’t often see a coat with such incredible leather detailing.” Ford Crossover Cropped Sweater and Cook Skirt by A.L.C. will make anyone stand out at a party.” Over top, she picks another standout in outerwear, H Brand’s Ashleigh fur coat. Martiniano’s High Glove heels. From a perennial best-selling brand, the new gold tone of these Italian kid leather kicks makes them perfect party shoes. And, with that, your cool girl uniform is set for the season. All images courtesy of Nicole Kwon.
