Does Drupal Commerce work with faceted search

I am new to drupal and considering using drupal commerce on my newest ecommerce project. As a newbie, I am in the learning stages and not completely clear as to the best use of the various drupal tools in certain applications.

I would like to create a dynamic product display like the one used here -


Note how the initial page shows products under the parent category "womens". The shopper has the ability via the radio buttons to refine the display to show products based on other facets such as brand, color, season, etc.

How might this same result be accomplished in drupal commerce? I don't mind digging in and learning. Perhaps some experienced drupal users might make recommendations as to how they would begin.

The Faceted Search has been implemented in the new Commerce Kickstart V2 (beta version) wich is a distribution for a fully working Drupal Commerce site.

You can install it and see how this has been done.

Basically, you'll need the Search API suite with Facet API enabled.

Hope this help !
