Runway draws a clientele of mature women who want bold, flashy styles, like leopard prints, furs, and leather pieces. The two-floor Soho boutique is lit by chandeliers surrounded by palms and filled with animal-print rugs and leather couches. The in-house label “Runway” produces slim pencil skirts; sexy but office-appropriate blouses and camisoles; animal-print dresses; super-luxe, Aspen-ready fur coats; and leather jackets in multiple shapes and magic marker shades. A handful of designer bridge-brand items also make the cut: little black dresses by GF Ferre, gauzy bias-cut frocks from Galliano, sharply cut suits by Boss Hugo Boss, and va-va-voom ruffled blouses from Just Cavalli. The shop’s bespoke service allows shoppers to get a custom-designed top, skirt, jacket, pant, or coat (sizes 0-18) in two to three weeks.
