Spring Picks Plus Retail Happenings

Spring Picks Plus Retail Happenings

In our April issue you might’ve noticed our City Style pages highlighting two vastly different color trends: brights and neutrals. This exciting juxtaposition of hues was very inspirational for me—since I love both.

The biggest change you’ll see this spring in brights is pairing a bright with another bright. Yep, that means coral with pink, or blue with yellow. If you’re not so adventurous, play with a neutral and a bright together—like a khaki top and vibrant cropped pant (or colored skinny jean) or a coral blouse and neutral skirt. Whatever way you choose to express your sartorial opinion, you’ll have plenty of ways to do it this spring.

Also, Rachel Zoe highlighted sunny hues this week on her website—check out “Bright Ideas: 20 Electric Spring Picks


Store Closings

I’m saddened to report that Kristin Wild’s boutique Atticus is closing. After almost three years in business, Wild has decided to refocus her efforts on other ventures. The shop carried up-and-coming designer lines, effortlessly curated by Wild’s expertise. Currently the entire shop is marked down, and Wild says they’ll have a farewell party in the upcoming weeks.
Atticus, 18 N. Carroll St. 204-9001.

Jennifer LaMore’s shop J. LaMore closed with little fanfare. A frequent Best of Madison winner, the shop’s tenure in Madison will be missed.



Yesterday shopbop announced they would be moving from their Rimrock Road digs (along with two other locations) to the Capital East District—specifically, the former Gisholt Machine Co. at 1245 and 1301 E. Washington Ave. Shopbop, which employs two hundred people, is growing at such a rapid rate that “in two years, they expect to be twice the size they are today,” I reported back in our July issue (read the article here).

And check out yesterday’s Wisconsin State Journal article about shopbop’s move.
