New York, NY (August 30, 2016) – Leading luxury beauty retailer Space NK opened its first standalone boutique in San Francisco at 2000 Fillmore Street on August 26th.

“Space NK has had a presence in the Bay Area for several years now with shops at the Marin Country Mart and Palo Alto Town & Country Village, as well as outposts inside two local Bloomingdale’s,” said Space NK managing director Noah Rosenblatt. “We are thrilled to open our first boutique in San Francisco and to have found such a great location in the Fillmore.”

Space NK Fillmore Street offers an expertly curated selection of beauty and wellness products including skincare, cosmetics, hair care, bath & body, home scents and fine fragrance sourced from around the world, many of them exclusive to Space NK. Established brands and cult favorites include Eve Lom, By Terry, Oribe, Kevyn Aucoin, Tata Harper, Chantecaille, Kane NY, Artis, Natura Bissé, Malin + Goetz, Ouai, Lipstick Queen, Kat Burki, Derm Institute, Goldfaden MD, Själ, Mila Moursi, and Miriam Quevedo. In line with the company’s approach to serving as a platform for industry innovators and emerging brands, more than 70 lines are offered with new products delivered every few weeks to promote discovery.

The new San Francisco location is also the first of Space NK’s US stores to introduce Surratt Beauty and Byredo into its edited assortment.

Taking design cues from Space NK boutiques recently opened in the U.K. and New York City in terms of color, fixtures and layout, the Fillmore shop reflects a new retail design for the company and offers a focused presentation in a modern apothecary setting. A new feature is a semi-private space for one-on-one services such as makeovers and express facial treatments.

“Our new store reveals a more contemporary design, but is still very much in sync with our brand. The aesthetic is elevated without deviating from our vision of a service-focused, luxury shopping experience,” noted Rosenblatt.

Space NK has commissioned San Francisco artist and sculptor Ricardo Richey, also known as Apexer, to create a mural on the Pine Street exterior wall of the store. Known for his colorful abstract patterns through use of spray paint, his design is the first in a series of #ArtOnPine murals that Space NK plans to update seasonally.

Services from the highly trained staff of makeup artists, skin specialists and hair stylists include complimentary makeovers, tutorials, express facials and dry styling. The store will regularly host experts and founders from the featured brands. Throughout the opening weeks, events include:

  • September 9: During the Autumn Beauty Edit event, guests will be perfectly prepped for the new season as Space NK presents the latest in autumn trends and looks. Exclusively for the event, and while supplies last, shoppers who spend $250 or more will receive a gift with a selection of must-haves from 29 of our featured brands.
  • September 17: Discover the secret to finding your perfect lip color during a special event with Lipstick Queen founder Poppy King, and experience her newest innovation – Black Lace Rabbit.
  • September 22: Let a member of Space NK’s visiting pro artistry team advise you on what makeup and skincare to keep, toss or update during a one-on-one beauty bag reboot and autumn makeover appointment.
  • October 22: Meet the VENeffect founders, sisters Cecil Booth and Rebecca Booth, MD, for a personal consultation and to learn more about their breakthrough designed to inspire peak vitality in skin.
