Walking down the hall of the Mission Promenade, you’ll come across a light, airy boutique filled with clothes and accessories inspired by the English equestrian style, or as owner and interior designer Collette Kaplan refers to it—reminiscent of Hermès. Kaplan aims to offer customers closet staples such as trousers, tops featuring high-quality stitching and buttons, and more. “We’ve really tried to focus in on wardrobe basics and then add in the novelty that is fashion forward and on trend,” Kaplan says. “We’re looking for things that are going to pull your wardrobe for the long haul.”

The boutique features brands such as Vince, Velvet and Graham, and Serena Bute as well as local designs, including purses and clutches by Marian Paquette from Laguna Beach. “Her bags can take an outfit from daytime to evening,” Kaplan says. “I love the fact that they’re upcycled fabric and handmade.” The store’s most popular items include AG Jeans, sweats from Stateside, and T-shirts from ATM. See something that catches your eye while shopping online? Atmosphere Atelier offers a concierge service, which was created because of the pandemic. Customers based in Orange County can purchase an item and call to request it be delivered to them.

Next month, the boutique will host its annual holiday event—customers can enjoy 15 percent off the entire store. Follow Atmosphere Atelier’s Instagram for updates and details.
