The boutique carries exclusive, one of a kind pieces designed by Koos van den Akker – a New York based designer known for designing Dr. Huxtable’s sweaters on the Cosby Show in the 80’s. Like the sweaters that made him famous, his couture clothing is known for its theme of bright color and pattern combinations. As Puck explained, his clothing is especially popular with older women who have had time to develop their style and look to this exclusive atelier for something special to add to their wardrobes.
For more about Koos and his design inspirations, check out koosnewyork.com, and stop by the shop at 1263 Madison Avenue in New York to see his work. Thank you, Puck, for your help, and thanks to Madison Beehive for telling us about the shop!
