Gilly Hicks was a lingerie brand owned by Abercrombie & Fitch, specializing in women's underwear and loungewear. It competed primarily with Victoria's Secret, Victoria's Secret PINK, and Aerie; an intimates spinoff of American Eagle Outfitters.
Designed to mimic a colonial-style manor house, the store featured arched hallways, mirrored walls, potted plants, and crystal chandeliers reminiscent of its sister brands Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister Co.
