Paper Mag's blog Word Up! takes a look inside recently-opened Soho shop Kisan, and finds the boutique to be "perfectly-curated" and "trés chic." "The owners’ Parisian roots are apparent in Kisan’s distinguished product selection. A spectacular collection of fall dresses, blouses, sweaters, and bags by French designer Sonia Rykiel are prominently displayed, and there are Annick Goutal parfums and classic Francophile cinema for sale, too. However, the essence of Kisan’s appeal is its mélange of cultural treasures. It is a blend of established brands, young designers, exclusive pieces, and oddball accessories from around the world for all ages." [Word Up!]
