In a super-long profile of Rick Caruso and his property, The Grove, WWD confirms a long-held rumor that J.Crew will be adding to its holdings at the outdoor mall with a standalone men's store as well as a Madewell outpost, the label's
third fourth location in LA after Glendale, Pasadena and Century City.
J.Crew Men's will replace PacSun while Madewell is taking over the storefront occupied by Arden B. In addition, Caruso mentions that he's bringing in LA-based styling service and boutique stylehaüs. There's also this:
Caruso considers his personality a good fit for a political campaign ("I would find it fun," he said) — and Angelenos might get a chance to judge if that's the case. He has toyed with the idea of running for mayor for quite some time and said he would determine if he is going to run within weeks.Interesting! We imagine that should Caruso make the decision to enter the race, he will have a pretty stellar campaign wardrobe.
