Little Italy Small Biz Spotlight: Kapreeza

There are so many wonderful small businesses in our Little Italy neighborhood, so we’d like to take a moment to spotlight one of them as we head into the Spring season. Allow us to introduce you to Kapreeza, THE source for European lingerie & swimwear located in the Art District of North Little Italy, San Diego, California. Just in time for Spring Break and another gorgeous San Diego summer right around the corner.

Little Italy Small Biz Spotlight: KAPREEZA OWNER RENATA CARLSEEN

KAPREEZA owner Renata Carlseen was so frustrated with the selection of undergarments, intimate apparel and swimwear available in San Diego, so she opened her own boutique in 2009. The Russian-born designer and trained seamstress knows how fabrics should work and how long they should last and that’s why every brand and collection in her Little Italy, San Diego shop incorporates exquisite attention to detail and is made with the best fabrics on the market. A lot of the merchandise she carries IS very practical and intended to be functional and for everyday use, not just special occasions.

When you shop at Kapreeza you can expect a variety of colors and designs in over 80 sizes, based on the collection, all year round. Quality is superior to the mass produced, poorly made garments you find at the mall and her prices are comparable to what you would pay at any high end department store but will last longer. You can expect one-on-one attention from Renata and her experienced and knowledgeable staff who believe every woman should feel beautiful no matter their size.  Appointments are highly recommended for fittings.

Renata is currently working with small European manufacturers to bring on her own line of intimate apparel to San Diego and plans on expanding to a second location in the next year. With her offering of so many choices and sizes, the hardest decision will be what one to buy!

Stop by or call Kapreeza today to find out out how to reserve a dressing room for two on your next date night out in Little Italy, or how you can reserve complimentary event space in her store to host a bachelorette party this wedding season.
