Our city's French invasion marches on. In addition to The Kooples selecting Robertson for its first US store and Hermès crashing Culver City for a once-in-a-lifetime party, Eleven Paris has tapped LA-raised poptart Sky Ferreira for it's fall campaign. The collection will mark the edgy global brand's official US launch.
Although EP has more than 20 boutiques in Europe, we'll have to wait a bit longer before they open a standalone in the states. (They already have an office out here, so we're hoping an LA store is next.) In the meantime, locals can have of taste of their playful printed tees at Nordstrom and Urban Outfitters. Founder Dan Cohen also tells us that he's dreaming of bringing his threads to American Rag Cie on La Brea.
"Los Angeles and Paris have an interesting dichotomy," Cohen explains. "While LA is known for its beaches and plentiful sunshine, Paris is always at the forefront of cutting-edge fashion. Blend the rock-and-roll spirit of California with the sophistication of French culture, the two cities complement Eleven Paris perfectly for the new US audience."
Catch more campaign images here (rocker Lenny Kravitz is also in the mix), and lookout for EP's fall collection in stores soon.
