Just in time for outdoor shopping season, Santa Monica Place is gearing up for a slew of fresh store openings. Following recent Camper and The Art of Shaving launches, the upscale mall located at the south end of 3rd Street Promenade tells us that a Kate Spade boutique is slated to open next Monday, May 13. (Road trip license plate clutches, anyone?)
The NY-based designer's SaMo space will host handbags, ready-to-wear, footwear, jewelry, eyewear, stationary, eyewear and more in signature blindingly bright hues. Also on the way is LeSportsac, who's set for a June debut and will feature nylon bag action for both men and women.
