When LA designer Jenni Kayne opened her eponymous West Hollywood boutique in late 2007, you couldn't help be taken with the architecture—clean lines, exposed wood beams, warm neutral hues, and a thoroughly modern space created by Jeffrey Allsbrook—which also includes the main front window, the first residents a leopard and a one-shouldered canary yellow gown. Since the shop's debut, it's continued to showoff a string of inventive windows. Of late, the boutique's taken a shattered approach with shards dominating the orange backdrop and floor. Just a single mannequin stands in a linen shorts suit, which is dressed-up casual on point for summer. [RackedWire]
