We've been hearing rumors for the past few months about Isabel Marant's plans for an LA store, and today they're confirmed by trade mag WWD. The LA boutique will be one of the six that Marant opens this year—the other locations are in Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo, Paris and London. "Our development is very targeted, very precise, with a clear idea of where we want to open boutiques and in which geographical regions we want to be present,” she said of the expansion.
Our sources put Marant in the northwest Beverly Grove area, but it's unclear if the French designer has signed a lease. If you've got a tip, do drop us a line here.
