You saw the photos. LAX's revamped Tom Bradley International Terminal will soon be the stylish jetsetter's go-to source for on-the-go retail therapy, boasting 150,000 square feet of must-shop boutiques and concession spaces. One of said storefronts is LA's own Kitson, who's landed a prime space near the entrance.
The star retailer gave us an exclusive peek at some of the LA-centric items to expect at the new shop, including the above Sol Angeles "Elle A" top ($98), the Lazypants kid's hoodie and pants ($58), the Swarovski crystal embellished hat by Rug Rats ($87) and the Skyline socks in Laker colors or black-and-white ($12).
Read on for a special message just for Racked readers from Kitson's director of operations, Courtney Saavedra.
Kitson will be the quintessential brand at Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT), representing LA designers, style and creativity. As you walk through the gorgeous, new, grand entrance to the Villaraigosa Pavilion, Kitson is the first store you see. When customers deplane around the world, they will be carrying a bag that reads "Kitson Los Angeles," advertising not just our brand, but our city, so we are working with local designers on many more collaborations in order to provide our international clients with LA branded clothing, gifts and accessories you would never find elsewhere. When our customers get home to Milan, Buenos Aires or Tokyo, the best of Los Angeles will be arriving with them.
