Looking for a place to buy fancy threads? Or maybe you’ve been lamenting the end of What Not to Wear because you really needed Stacy and Clinton’s help? Cry no more, Charlestonians: Trunk Club, opening one of its “Clubhouses” at the Cigar Factory later this summer, offers personal stylist services to both men and women in addition to selling a slew of premium and custom clothes.

If you’re in the market for a suit or tuxedo, the Clubhouse offers a custom option in addition to tailoring. In other words, you can design your own suit and have it created just for you. No big deal. If all you want is some helpful advice from the experts, Trunk Club has you covered with their personal stylist appointments. And if that doesn’t have you hooked, the Clubhouse will offer “a complimentary bar for you to enjoy before, during, and after your appointment,” according to the website. You tell your stylist what you’re into and then grab a drink while they shop for you. Sign me up. No word yet on an exact date for opening, but you can check out the Charleston page on the Trunk Club website for updates.

Morgan Kylee. boutique opens on King Street

A new queen on King

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Thu, May 12, 2016 at 2:23 PM

  • Connelly Hardaway
Morgan Kylee Henzlik's new boutique, Morgan Kylee., located at 123 King St., is a little off the beaten path. And by beaten path we mean the main drag of King St. — you know, the stretch between two Starbucks. Located across from Berlin's, the airy boutique fits in nicely with Lower King's classy, tailor-made vibes. 

After closing her Atlanta shop, Henzlik headed to Charleston where she maintains her carefully curated selection of high-end clothing, shoes, and jewelry. "I never wanted to have the same thing anyone else had," she says, explaining that most of the clothes she sells, she only carries in one of each size. 

  • Connelly Hardaway
Henzlik wants her shoppers to have personalized experiences and she wants them to love what they walk home with. She carries lines like Giulietta, STROM, Blank Denim, Ganni, Votivo, and more. If that sounds like your kinda place, then check out the store, open Mon.-Sat., 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
