Arafina Arrives at D.NOLO

D.NOLO, Veronica Clark’s collection of mini boutiques under one North Loop roof, has added another Edina store to its cooperative space. After 15 years at the Galleria, Arafina has moved to D.NOLO, joining collections from 50th-&-France favorites Bumbershute and Bluebird Boutique.

In keeping with Arafina’s sophisticated, feminine aesthetic, the D.NOLO shop will carry dressier pieces from contemporary brands such as Clover Canyon (below), RVN, and Chelsea Flower. Arafina owner Ann Ackman plans to add more designers come fall, lending a more urban vibe than the Galleria store had while maintaining its upscale reputation.

“The customer range here is so broad,” Ackman says. “We have people who will be going to clubs but also to the Guthrie and the opera. They want to adapt to the North Loop lifestyle and are dressing accordingly.” •
