That’s right, design superfans. One of my long-time, all-time favorite fashion outposts has just expanded from Austin to Houston, and I couldn’t be more thrilled for Kick Pleat owner/mega-inspiration Wendi Martin and her band of merry style-makers – or for the good people of Houston, Texas.
For those of you lucky enough to live in Houston, Kick Pleat will be hosting a Grand Opening on Monday, April 25th at their new – and undoubtedly beautiful – location on Kirby Drive.
Can’t be in Houston on Monday? Me neither – which is why I’m bringing the celebration right here to Block Print Social, with a look into the ethereal & utterly inspiring world of Kick Pleat.
In addition to stocking interesting, independent designer duds in its brick + mortar and online stores, Kick Pleat consistently creates beautiful content in the form of its seasonal lookbooks and online journal. If you’ve been reading Block Print Social for a while now, you may remember this post, showcasing Kate LeSueur‘s arresting photography for the Kick Pleat Lookbook V. Well, Kate’s at it again in Lookbook VIII – and I’m no less drawn in by these dreamy images or the covetable, wearable design they portray.
See the rest of the lookbook & shop all the looks here.
But wait! The celebration continues!
Can you blame me?
And then there’s the Journal…
I love these photos from Wendi’s seasonal buying trip to Paris;
And, of course, that dress.
Still sad you’re going to miss the Grand Opening? Me too. But that’s what online commerce was made for!
