All of a sudden, LA is a French fashion mecca. This year alone we've seen the opening of Isabel Marant on Melrose Place and Céline on Rodeo, and learned that Maje and Iro are also setting up shops. Another chic Parisian haven to add to that list is the much-rumored Sandro, which plans to bow a boutique on Beverly Drive in August.
The brand's LA debut follows the opening of its first West Coast store in Las Vegas, which was officially unveiled last Thursday at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. The grand reveal was hosted by cool French blogger Garance Dore and featured a road trip theme to prep Cali shoppers for their big West Coast push, which also includes an SF shop.
No word yet on Sandro Beverly Hills' exact address, but the brand tells us that it will carry all new fall/winter 2013 merchandise, so plan your budget now if Alexa Chung is your style god.
