It looks like this is the answer to what's taking the place of longtime shop Aldine Books on Hollywood Boulevard, east of Vermont. Per FWD, Danny Masterson of That 70s Show and Scientology fame and Ilaria Urbinati, who is a stylist and has been a buyer for formidable boutiques such as Satine, are opening up a 5,000-square-foot men's and women's boutique in that very area. The pub reports: "The story [sic] will carry the latest and greatest from the likes of Alaia, Proenza Schouler, Margiela, Zac Posen, Jenni Kayne, Mayle, Band of Outsiders, Vena Cava, Anna Sui, Nom de Guerre, Patrick Ervell and Opening Ceremony."
The boutique will also carry books, beauty, as well as have a cafe and gallery "which will feature etchings by Francis Bacon, Julian Schnabel and Francesco Clemente." A big bash is slated for September 16, and "Rumor has it that Agyness Deyn and Albert Hammond might host."
