Looks like women's boutique Love Amour isn't loving its location anymore at 410 North La Cienega Boulevard, between Oakwood and Rosewood Avenues. The "for lease" signs are up, but there's no indication whether it's moving locations or shuttering for good. The area continues to thicken, with Opening Ceremony (and its new Mini Mall), the expansion of gourmet sweet shop Boule Atelier and newish restaurants like Japanese tapas spot Ronin and, of course, Nobu. Could Love Amour's movement be the fallout of rising rents? We heard that's why gallery Blackman Cruz closed shop and headed to Highland Avenue. [RackedWire]
