Rumors confirmed, wishes granted: Barneys Co-Op will be funking up the mix at Santa Monica Place. The soon-to-be-open shopping center (seriously: August is not that far away; where has the year gone?) already has a roster of boldfaced retail names, including Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Bloomingdales and Tory Burch. More to come. [Racked National]
