A.K. Rikk’s X Chloé Spring/Summer Collection

February 12, 2018

A.K. Rikk’s is so excited to debut Natacha Ramsay-Levi’s Chloé Spring Summer 2018 collection- specifically their iconic bags! We will have 55 bags and 300 ready-to-wear pieces flown in from Paris for one weekend only: Thursday, February 15-Saturday, February 17. In the early 1950’s, Chloés founder Gaby Aghion answered the demand for a label that combined the high quality of haute couture with the accessibility of ready-to-wear. Today, many “IT” girls like Cindy Crawford, Chrissy Tiegen, Olivia Culpo, Jenna Dewaun Tatum, Meghan Markle, Solange Knowles, and Olivia Palmero carry on this tradition.

Here are some of OUR favorite bags from the collection:

NILE BRACELET BAG

“Crafted in the distinctive Chloé saddle shape, the Nile day-to-evening bag features a sleek masculine top line and equestrian details. The refined articulated bracelets are attached with an elegant D-link, adding a striking feminine slant. Flanked by a studded leather strip echoing the strap, the Nile is embossed with a Chloé logo and has an adjustable, removable leather strap allowing multiple carries (including at the functional brass bracelet).”

PIXIE BAG

“The Pixie bag features unique double bracelet handles: one smooth and one faceted. This medium double handle version is a roomy day bag with a round silhouette in an earthy red shade. With half-moon panels on the front, this bag offsets shiny goatskin leather against smooth and suede calfskin for a dynamic textural contrast. A leather band with golden studs contours the base, bringing equestrian detail to enhance the bag’s feminine lines.”

FAYE SHOULDER BAG

“The clean, contemporary aesthetic of the Faye shoulder bag makes it an effortlessly elegant accessory with laid-back appeal. The flawless combination of smooth and suede calfskin adds textural depth, punctuated with cool hardware for subtle 70s flair. The Faye is characterised by the “piercing” ring loop with hook and chain — the rounded shapes complement the bag’s clean lines. The luxurious accordion-shaped style makes Faye a sophisticated carry-all.”

Want to try Chloé on for yourself and be entered to win the “IT” bag? 

We are hosting our kickoff event on Thursday, February 15th from 4:30-6:30pm. Come sip champagne, enjoy Mokaya chocolates, and see looks styled by Chloé representatives. You can even pre-order Fall 2018 bags before anybody else!

Resort Wear Is Here: Part 1- Women’s

January 17, 2018

With January in full swing, we know you are ready to travel to warmer climates more than ever! A.K. Rikk’s has hundreds of new resort wear arrivals to help you feel and look your best as you escape the snow and gloomy weather. Karina (Sales Manager) has picked three potential resort wear looks that we know you will love (modeled on Personal Stylist, Hannah).

This first look is perfect for a casual day out shopping, exploring, or going on an excursion. The fabric on this Chloe shirt adds visual interest and is a breathable linen. The terra cotta sweater is perfect for layering with varying temperatures throughout the day. Pair this with a bag from The Row and a pair of cute scalloped flat sandals from Chloe, and you are all set for a day on your feet or kicked back on a deck for brunch.

The next look is great for both day and night. The top and bottom are patterned separates from Alice + Olivia. The vertical stripe detail is extremely slimming for every body type, and the separate pieces allows for versatility in your current wardrobe. The colors and bow tie on the collar characterize the quintessential resort wear nod to “nautical” style, inspired by sailor and yachting themes, but in a subtle and current way. Throw on a pair of Stuart Weitzman loafers, and a Chloe cross body chain purse and you are ready for a dockside dinner!

Want to elevate your resort wear look a little bit more? Throw on this striped crop top and wide leg pant by Alice + Olivia for a late candlelit dinner on the beach. The wide leg is universally flattering and creates a fantastic high-waist silhouette for the crop top to be featured but still tasteful. This oversize bag by The Row is perfect for throwing in an additional jacket or sweater for a chilly night, and it is a great introductory price-point for one of our favorite brands! The nude Stuart Weitzman shoe is classic and simple, allowing the lace details of the pant to stand out more.

From head to toe, your style can be not only weather and trip-appropriate, but unique, fashionable, and luxurious at the same time. Not seeing what you need or love? We have hundreds of more options in store! Contact your personal shopper to set up an appointment. He or she will start pulling looks that are customized to you and your trip!

Behind the Seams: Hannah Wilson

December 28, 2017

Today as a part of our Behind the Seams with A.K. Rikk’s series we would like to introduce you to one of our Personal Shoppers, Hannah Wilson. Hannah has been a valuable part of the A.K. Rikk’s family for 8 months! “Being from New York, I was so happy to find a place that fosters creativity and being unique!” We asked Hannah what brought her to A.K. Rikk’s and what makes her tick during her interview!

How did you originally discover A.K. Rikk’s?

I heard of A.K. Rikk’s through word of mouth when I first moved to Grand Rapids. I remember walking into my interview and immediately feeling the warm energy from the team. Everyone was so welcoming, my nerves about interviewing instantly went away! 

What was the first piece you fell in love with at A.K. Rikk’s?

It was a pair of Valentino Rockstud pumps in a camel color! The moment I saw them I knew I had to have them!

What is one of your favorite memories during your time at A.K. Rikk’s?

Definitely our 30th Anniversary celebration; being able to attend such a beautiful event to honor the store’s incredible achievement was something I will never forget.

What was the first piece of luxury fashion you ever owned?

When I graduated college my parents bought me an iconic Chanel bag as a graduation gift! I’ve loved Chanel since I was little and have read a ton of her biographies. A lot of people don’t realize that Gabrielle Chanel was forced to wear black and white to school as a child to identify the fact that she was an orphan. She built a fashion house with the two main colors being black and white, so wealthy people would start wearing them too. I think that idea is brilliant.

Who are your style icons?

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are my style icons! I love their cool twist on minimalistic style. They are also all about proportions and I love oversized everything!

What are your three favorite pieces in your wardrobe?

My Chanel Bag, my Chloé Nile, and my Saint Laurent red crocodile bag… can you tell I love accessories? I want to build a huge collection to pass on eventually.

That concludes this Behind the Seams with A.K. Rikk’s interview. Next time you stop in, be sure to say “hello” to Hannah!

What to Wear for Labor Day Weekend

August 30, 2017

 

Here at A.K. Rikk’s we love any reason to find the perfect outfit for the weekend. Labor Day is almost here and is a reminder a break from work is important and so is being ready for “layering” season. To find out what to wear for the holiday weekend and into the fall season we sat down with two of our Personal Shoppers, Hannah Wilson and Alexander Mars, to ask about their Labor Day weekend plans, what they’ll be wearing, and how they will transition items from day-to-night as we leave summer and enter into fall.

February 9, 2017

Today as a part of our Behind The Seams with A.K. RIKK’S series we’d like to introduce our Women’s Merchandise Coordinator, Courtney Lee. She has been a part of our family for almost three years. A lover of fashion for as long as she can remember, Courtney recalls, “There was this one specific moment when everything changed for me. I was shopping with a friend about six years ago standing in the check out line with a fashion book in my hand and my friend turned to me and said ‘You obviously love fashion don’t you? You need to work in that industry.’ For some reason those words made a huge impact on me and redirected my career focus.” Get to know why Courtney is a full fledged #ChloeGirl through a series of questions in our twelfth Behind The Seams with A.K. RIKK’S interview.
