When Anica boutique first opened in San Francisco, four years ago, I remember seeing their post cards around the Russian Hill end of Polk Street. Anica has always carried the brands that I drooled over and kept with the times. Right now what’s in stock is Acne, Alexander Wang, Anica’s own line, Lizzie Fortunato, Maison Martin Margiela, Mociun, Opening Ceremony, Rachel Comey, Rosenmunns, and Shin. The boutique is nestled on the pretty side of Polk Street in Russian Hill (I say that lovingly, Polk is one of my favorite streets in San Fransisco), near French cafes, rice pudding shops, antique shops and a few other darling boutiques.
Owner, Rati Sahi, wanted to create a place where women could experiment with clothes in a comfortable setting. Wearing more avant garde clothing can be intimidating for a lot of women who may not be model thin, or used to wearing more experimental silhouettes and textures. Rati gives a lot of personal attention (when needed) to her clients, and encourages a sense of playful chic. Here we talk with Rati about Anica, what’s in store, and what to expect next season…
