Downtown, an edgy boutique owned by Michael Kelter, celebrated its grand opening on Tuesday, Sept. 21 in exquisite style. Seventy fashionable guests, including Selma Blair, Todd and Katie Traina, Denise Hale and Cameron Silver enjoyed an evening of dinner, drinks and fashion at the posh Maiden Lane location. Upbeat music and flowing Champagne provided guests with an ambiance similar to the style of the store, gritty yet impossibly chic. Kelter has combined this style with the launch of his new store, which houses designers from Balmain to Haider Ackermann along with many other designers from Japan, Germany, Italy and France. The store also features a jewelry collection that Michael Kelter created in collaboration with local talent Geoffrey Young. Guests attended the soirée donning styles from the Downtown boutique.
Kelter’s success of his menswear boutique, The Archive, prompted him to take a chance on a womenswear store providing the ultimate experience. Downtown brings a unique edge to the Bay area for its trendy clients. Kelter has created a shopping haven that allows for customers to enjoy cocktails and snacks while relaxing in French club chairs or browsing highly coveted designs from around the world. In-house iPads are also available to keep tagalongs busy while patiently waiting. Downtown was created as not only a place to shop, but a place to hang out and enjoy.
