The high fashion boutiques just keep coming. Of late, Balenciaga and Alexander McQueen on Melrose, with Alberta Ferretti hot on their heels, and now Missoni to Beverly Hills. This confirms our intel from a tipster way back in the beginning of April that the fashion house was going to take over the shuttered Theodore space. Per FWD: "The new West Coast flagship will be located on the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and North Rodeo Drive, just a stone's throw from Giorgio Armani and Ralph Lauren."
Of note is its interior design choice: "The brand has tapped Patrick Kinmonth, the opera designer and photography and gardening author best known in fashion circles for having masterminded Valentino's 45th anniversary retrospective at the Richard Meier-designed Ara Pacis Museum in Rome, Italy."
