Unexpected Kanye West pal Tory Burch is expanding. Adding to her existing West Coast portfolio that includes boutiques on Robertson, in Malibu and at South Coast Plaza is a 4,700-square-foot, three-story shop, which is set to open on Rodeo Drive next month. This space will serve as the designer's official LA flagship and will feature ready-to-wear, handbags, footwear, fragrance and more.
Situated a few doors down from Cartier and across from Chanel, the 366 North Rodeo Drive location will be fancier than the brand's other spots. Burch teamed up with her go-to architect Daniel Romualdez to create the residential-inspired store's ritzy interior that includes "gold leaf peony wallpaper with white coral sconces, a Madeleine Castaing carpet in an oak-paneled room, a velvet seating nook with an antique Moroccan tile mirror, abaca rugs, brown lacquer walls, cane tables and seafoam drapes."
