Knit Wit and Plage Tahiti Merge in a Fashion Wonderland
June 23, 2014 | by alexandria geisler | Style & Beauty
This July, Chestnut Street welcomes a summer-essentials-filled wonderland with the exciting merge of Knit Wit and Plage Tahiti.
Natural bronze wide cuff ($260), natural bronze standard cuff ($250), and natural bronze thin cuff ($240), Marmol Radziner, available at Knit Wit.
“Everybody always tells me that our Margate location is their favorite because it’s really Knit Wit and Plage [Tahiti] combined,” says Knit Wit co-owner Ann Gitter, who is unveiling a similar merged-concept store in Philadelphia next month. “Joining the two just made sense.” Like the Shore store in Margate, all of the brands from the original two stores now hang together, artfully arranged by color or fabric.
“Women want to wear dresses when the weather gets hot, and the expansion will offer contemporary designers like Alice + Olivia and Parker,” explains Gitter. The shop also boasts rare accessories from Marmol Radziner. “Radziner is a famous architecture firm; they make jewelry with the same fabrication as their modern staircases,” Gitter says. “Their pieces are raw-looking and beautiful. I’ll be wearing these amazing cuffs.” 1729 Chestnut St., 215-564-4760
