Long-time Abbot Kinney clothier stands out among the new crop of trendy retailers with her imaginative, hand-made fashions.. In Short With outfits displayed on dressmaker dummies and heaps of clothing around, this airy boutique feels like a workshop where the designer's imagination is at play. Simon's romantic designs--like the Monet skirt made out of five petticoat layers of differently textured silks--evoke a bygone age while maintaining a soft modernity that renders them wearable. Ruffles, bustles, full sleeves and whimsical gatherings of material are favored. The shop also carries linens, gifts and accessories.
