The Twin Cities' Greatest Hits 2012

The Twin Cities' Greatest Hits 2012

(page 9 of 13)

Suburban Fashion

Roe Wolfe

Roe Wolfe could easily hold its own in Minneapolis or St. Paul proper, but man, are those of us in the east suburbs glad they set up shop where they did. Peruse the likes of cool-girl Siwy denim, Winter Kate clothing, Coclico shoes, delightful fragrances, and more. Stereotypes about suburban style: busted. • 750 Main St., Ste. 107, Mendota Heights, 651-330-4434, roewolfe.com
 

Shoes

Mrs. P. Hicks

Thankfully for consumers, those who design great brands and products usually can’t stop at just one. Katherine McMillan, one half of the dapper men’s line Pierrepont Hicks, stepped out with her American-handmade menswear-inspired women’s footwear line this year. All these descriptors, though, belie the root of her great design sense: simplicity. • mrsphicks.com
 

Tailor

Tom's Tailor

Shop owners swear by him. Brides trust him. Men and women alike leave his store feeling like a million bucks. Tom of Tom’s Tailor is not only speedy, but honest, competitively priced, and kind—oh, and according to Satchel Moore of St. Paul men’s shop BlackBlue, Tom also has incredibly soft hands. What’s not to like? • 672 Grand Ave., St. Paul, 651-222-5953

Bridal

L’Atelier

Many women dream of their big day decades before it happens. But they might not imagine where that big white dress comes from, or the lovely experience of trying it on for the first time. Well, the dress of those dreams—labeled with an exclusive name like Oscar, Vera, or Jenny—is likely hanging in a giant industrial-glam loft in the North Loop, just waiting for its star turn down the aisle. L’Atelier’s move to the fairytale location cemented its status as a national destination for the stylish bride. • 219 N. Second St., Ste. 404, Mpls., 612-367-8120, lateliercouturebridal.com
