Most mall kiosks hawk products like iPhone covers, hair straightening gizmos and other items of questionable taste and origin, but most malls are not The Grove. A few months ago, the LA outdoor shopping destination decided to add a luxury touch to its kiosk offerings with the launch of designer-driven pop-ups named Pop Carts, and they've decided to continue the initiative through the new year.
The first wave of Pop Carts went to Heidi Merrick, Clare Vivier and ban.do and were open for three months. Today, a release went out stating that LA's own La Mer Collections timepieces (not to be confused with the luxury skincare line) will be next in line for a Pop Cart pop up. It will offer more than 100 styles including 25 Grove exclusives—all priced from $58 to $350. Preview the goods here and shop them in person when the La Mer Collections cart debuts on March 1st.
