Although Michael Kors‘ first Boston boutique opened just months ago at Copley Place, the company has clearly decided they love it here. Another boutique is slated to open in August at The Mall at Chestnut Hill, a 15 minute drive from the downtown location. According to the press release, the store will offer a full range of accessories and shoes from the Michael Kors, KORS Michael Kors, and MICHAEL Michael Kors collections, as well as a selection of ready to wear pieces, fragrance, watches, and eyewear.
Apothecary brand Kiehl’s, which has been on Newbury Street for years, is also taking a space there. Good to know I can stock up on my must-have lip balm and grapefruit body wash in the ‘burbs too. (Though, um, don’t they sell the line at Barneys? There’s a mini branch in this mall, actually.)
The upscale mall, which is rarely fully rented (but has an Apple store and the area’s only Sur La Table, and is anchored by Bloomingdale’s, has seen a burst of activity lately. Soma Intimates (a lingerie shop similar to Intimacy in Copley, with a bra-fitter in residence), opened last month, as did a new Ann Taylor concept store.
