We've been hearing stories and seeing signs that the great city of LA is trying to class up Highland Avenue, south of Hollywood Blvd. A James Perse store is opening this summer, and quite a few high profile restaurants have also set up shop on the Ave. Next up: FreeCity. The spendy casual brand is leaving their Malibu digs and moving into a space that's just five blocks from their workshop. The 3,000 square foot FreeCitySupershop Supermat will carry clothing, music, books, and assorted other handmade ephemera.
