We posted yesterday about the new Vince boutique on Robertson, but there's more brewing on the stretch between West 3rd Street and Beverly Boulevard. Russian teen retail titan Kira Plastinina is coming to the street, which will likely be a big draw for all the tweens who already hit the neighborhood for trendy gear from Kitson and American Apparel. Word is Kira's empire—which includes 40 shops in Russia alone—is coming to the U.S. full force with numerous stores in the works in LA and NYC. It's not new news that Chanel, D&G and Ralph Lauren are coming to Robertson, and, as of now, there's nothing new to report on the plywood front. Note that Kira and Ralph are taking applications, so check the images for contact info. Luxe French shoe and accessories line Robert Clergerie has closed shop and opened on Brighton Way in Beverly Hills. Meanwhile, Horn boutique is also gone, with no "for lease" signs visible.
