Tucked inside a tiny Dinkytown alcove, Covered’s sparse industrial space, complete with raised ceilings, natural wood floors, and Swiss-designed steel clothing racks, allows the tony threads to be the candy. Covered is the first nonconsignment women’s store in Dinkytown in years, and owner and buyer Stacy Larson saw that with the area’s younger demographic and foot traffic, it was the perfect spot for her high-end jean boutique.
“I am obviously denim obsessed,” she says, motioning behind her to the neatly stacked wall of dungarees from Joes, Taverniti So, J Brand, and Serfontaine.
Plus, in a season where proportions are paramount, Larson rounds out the selection with longer, looser fitting tops by Yumi Kim, clingy tees by Smashing Grandpa, slouchy leather bags by J. J. Winters and Moni Moni, and delicate gold and silver artisan-made jewelry by celeb favorite Gorjana. Larson stocks merchandise at a variety of prices and encourages her customers to invest in the higher-priced denim to mix with less expensive tops. 402 14th Ave. SE, Mpls., 612-378-4776.
