Rihanna and David Bowie's favorite relaxed wear retailer is heading to Venice. Yo! Venice reports that Canada's Roots will take over the 1505 Abbot Kinney space formerly occupied by Urban Escape. The interiors haven will retain the back portion for its existing hair salon.
In addition to sportswear gear, Roots Venice will feature handcrafted leather goods, handbags, shoes and accessories. This is the retail giant's second store on the West Coast; they already have an outpost at 371 N Beverly Dr in Beverly Hills. Stay tuned for opening details.
