Sincerely, Tommy

Is a hip new boutique which opened last fall in Brooklyn. It's owner, 26 year-old Kai Avent-deLeon (my new style crush) started her career as a manager for Aritzia and Chanel stores. The stylish entrepreneur shares a bit about her personal aesthetic below.

Kai Avent deLeon's Bed Stuy concept store is quickly becoming a destination for those in search of hot coffee and cool clothes. Sincerely, Tommy which takes it's name from it's Tompkins Avenue location combines inspiration from Avent-deLeon's travels with local Authenticity. "There are subtle hints inside the store that are paying homage to the area," explains the Bed-Stuy native. We try to be really aware of the music and make it versatile and play Biggie and artists that are from the neighborhood. And Carrying local designers is a big thing for me." Among the 20 clothing, apothecary, and ceramics brands inside the store are hard-to-find Brooklyn-based labels like Lauren Levin, I waited for you, Jamie McCarty, and an eponymous collection.
