Perrin Paris 1893 bags have claimed shelf space in LA for some time now—at Fred Segal, West 3rd Street's Malgosia, and Santa Monica's Savannah, to name a few places—but, this fall, it looks like they'll be getting a home of their very own. We spotted this signage yesterday at 346 N. Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills, right next door to the Christophe salon. A quick glance through the brand's website revealed several earthy, yet sophisticated styles—surprisingly youthful, considering the rather old-school tone of the logo and window covering (and the fact that they recently designed a multi-pocketed clutch for Martha Stewart). Judging by the online stockist list, it looks like this is going to be the brand's first standalone boutique in the US (we're awaiting confirmation).
UPDATED: We've learned that the store, which is indeed set to be the brand's flagship, will open in September 2009. Along with the bags and gloves, a line of "chunky statement-making leather cuffs, bracelets and necklaces" and two charity versions of the "Martha" clutch will debut in time for the boutique's launch.
