French brands are realizing that there's more to the US market than New York City. Brands like Isabel Marant and Iro, who just opened an NYC boutique and announced its intentions to do the same here in LA.
In a report in WWD, Iro's co-founder revealed that he and his brother want to "open stores in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami and Boston." He also said that they've already decided on a location in LA, but "declined to divulge" the address or even the neighborhood. Melrose Place? Robertson? Let the guessing begin.
