Cohorts of too cool boutique Confederacy, prepare to be majorly, majorly bummed. The Indie 38 shop's co-owners, celeb stylist Ilaria Urbinati and actor/sometimes DJ Danny Masterson have called it quits on the beloved Hollywood store, which closed its doors on Monday after five years, reports WWD.
Originally, the duo had planned to move the shop further west due to slow foot traffic until "other projects [kept] us a little too much away from the store," Urbinati tells the fashion trade pub. The shop decided to stock only men's merch in 2011, while bag ladies flocked to the spot for Rebecca Minkoff's stellar sample sales over the last three years.
There is, however, a silver lining: Minkettes will be happy to know that for now, the LA designer's wares will hold court in the now former Confederacy space.
