Big, big news for stylish frequent flyers: Westfield has teamed up with Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa and Los Angeles World Airports to roll out 50 dining and luxury retail concepts at LAX's revamped Tom Bradley International Terminal opening spring 2013.
As part of a $1.5 billion development deal, the new TBIT will feature free-standing luxury boutiques from Hermes, Gucci and Burberry, as well as offerings from Kitson, Balenciaga, Fred Segal, Chloé and a whole lot more. Duty-free shopping will feature items from over 20 beauty brands, including MAC, Bobby Brown, La Mer and LA's own Smashbox. Need assistance? International travelers can take advantage of DFS Platinum Services Club's personalized shopping and concierge service.
In addition to retail, the 25,000-square-foot space will be stacked with stellar dining options from a host of foodie-favored spots like Umami Burger, ink.sack, Bordergrill and Chaya. Caffeine junkies can get their fix at the LAMill Coffee boutique and sweet toothed-ones can dig into Short Cake or Vanilla Bake Shop.
