Designer Makié Yahagi opened her pint-size children’s clothing shop on SoHo’s Thompson Street in 1999 calling it, simply, Makié. The daughter of a seamstress, Makié was making clothing for her two sons (they’re now just a little older than her shop) when she got the idea.
We’ve been adherents of her brand (that now includes adult sizes and housewares) for the past decade and have always wondered: What does her house look like? Not surprisingly, it’s as charm-filled as her store. She rents the two-bedroom loft in SoHo from an acquaintance and has set it up in a simple, thoughtful way that can only be described as so Makié.
