Company Summary

De Kliek Style Studio is an upscale women's clothing boutique that intends to open in Noe Valley in July. De Kliek means "clique or circle of friends" in Dutch; this defines the boutique and its essence of inclusion. De Kliek carries beautiful designer labels for professional women, such as the sophisticated silhouettes of Herr Frau and luxurious Jamin Puech handbags. De Kliek's clothing selections and exclusive personal style services, which include a detailed Style Assessment that features nine different style personalities, will ensure that our customers are always well dressed.
