In Case You Missed It!!!!!!!

April 28, 2014

A few months ago, we got a call from a woman inquiring about some information on the A.K. Rikk’s women’s department. Among the questions were basic facts like how large of a store we were, how long had we been carrying women’s, and had we ever been featured in the press before (namely larger publications or national/international magazines). That’s when our ears really perked up. Turns out that the woman calling was as a research journalist from non-other than Elle Magazine! After speaking back and forth a few times via email and by phone, we had painted quite a picture of who is and what is A.K. Rikk’s. With no official confirmation, we scoured the internet daily for the tiniest hint of being published and checked the magazine racks until the May issue finally came out. The day came, and there we were! Page 58 in the May 2014 issue of one of the top US women’s fashion magazines! We could not have been more humbled or excited. Thank you, Elle Magazine for the wonderful feature! Check out the full article below!

Elle’s Top Shop: A.K. Rikk’s, 6303 28th Street SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546;616-957-3242.

WHAT’S THERE: Owner Richard Gaby founded it in 1986 as a men’s store; he has since included women’s wear and home goods, with the goal of becoming Michigan’s premier contemporary lifestyle destination. The 28,000-square-foot space stockpiles cool-kid classics from Alexander Wang, Rick Owens Dark Shadow, and Jason Wu, and Euro showstoppers Valentino and Salvatore Ferragamo.

Kudos going out to the designer for his Spring 2014 RTW collection earlier this week! Instead of using traditional models Rick used a Step Team to deliver what is now being hailed as the crowning performance of his career and THE best show this year! We love you RO!
