A new men’s apparel boutique is set to open early- to mid-April in Hyde Park Square. It will be located next to Knickers XY and will be called “45/46 XY Inspired.”
The new boutique is owned by the same group that owns Knickers (women’s lingerie shop), and Knickers XY (men’s underwear/sleepwear/shave shop), both also in Hyde Park Square.
45/46 will carry denim, ready-to-wear casual men’s apparel, sportswear, denim, shoes and accessories such as stylish messenger bags.
I got a sneak peek into the store late last week and it’s amazing. I think men will really like it. They’re designing it to feel like an urban loft in a big concrete jungle. They’re even putting faux skylights in the changing room to make it look like you’re looking up at skyscrapers. The shelving is all rich mahogany (I can’t say that in my head without sounding like Ron Burgundy), walls are copper tones, wall paper is in masculine geometric shapes, couches are leather, and lots of stainless steel throughout the space.
Check out a pic I snapped on my behind-the-scenes tour of the new place! Can’t wait for it to open!
