When effortlessly chic designers like Isabel Marant and Opening Ceremony's Humberto Leon are in need of inspiration, they head to cult fave boutique Scout. Luckily for them, the Cali-cool shop recently got itself some brand new digs in West Hollywood, just down the ways from equally inspiring fellow Vintage 38ers. To officially toast its debut on the stylish block, Scout's owner and designer Joey Grana is throwing a party this Thursday, August 22nd.
Going down from 6pm to 9pm at 8021 Melrose Ave, the grand opening bash will boast booze, treats and snacks from acclaimed pastry chefs Koa Duncan and Alex Moreno and—possibly the best part—an adorable kitten petting zoo. Plus, guests can shop exclusive new wares from avant-garde label RITES, along with the indie store's own in-house collection.
Psst, and we hear there'll be a few celebs and It girls in the house. Want in? Shoot an email to email@example.com with your name and your guest's name (+1 max) by noon tomorrow.
