Not a food item but certainly craveable, the Bento Box from workwear fashion disrupter MM.LaFleur is like a chef’s tasting menu for professional women, served with four to six stylist-selected items (accessories, knits, separates, and dresses up to size 22W) and a nonsubscription, four-day free trial—a no-pressure sales pitch. The brand is gaining traction for “revolutionizing” career-driven fashion via designer Miyako Nakamura’s functional yet unique designs made to fit and beguile (think subtle, flattering pleats, waistbands, and darts). A bonus: The e-commerce company is opening appointment-only pop-up shops, like the one at the Shops Buckhead Atlanta, to serve overscheduled fashion-seekers between coffees and client meetings.
