If you were worried that Alexis Bittar was going to come to LA and be all tame and lame, rest assured that his two new stores on the West Coast will be just as cool as the ones in NYC. And what does that coolness entail? How about wacky graffiti on the silk-covered walls and piles of taxidermied animals watching you shop?
The two spaces will be at 1612 Abbot Kinney Blvd and 8383 West 3rd Street. Bittar says he likes having his own stores as a place to "take some risks" and "show more fashion-forward pieces that other stores may not consider to be ‘safe, sellable’ items."
So, how much is that Bambi in the window?
