Current Obsession: Kai Avent-deLeon and Brooklyn Store Sincerely, Tommy
Kai Avent-deLeon is unquestionably one of the coolest women in our Instagram feed, and being pregnant only makes us love her more; doing mum-to-be in the most inspiring way, ever! She’s the owner and creative director of fashion and lifestyle shop Sincerely, Tommy, located in the Brooklyn neighborhood Bed-Stuy—an area where she grew up and still lives today (check out her amazing apartment here).
The store opened in 2014, and focuses on emerging womenswear and lifestyle brands. Alongside the in-house fashion label, they offer a unique mix of vintage and ready-to-wear pieces that Kai has hand picked—perhaps on one of her alone-trips around the world (a way of traveling she would recommend to anyone). The space is all red brick walls and polished concrete floors, and holds a vibrant mix of clothing, accessories and one-of-a-kind objects framed by the smell of fair trade coffee coming from the in-store coffee counter.
Now, talking about the place as if we had actually been there—but tragically haven’t, yet—we’re putting the place, and the person, on top of our list of things to see, meet, interview the next time we go to New York, and that better be soon.
