It seems Abbot Kinney has a thing for global gems. In addition to boasting a bevy of international fashion boutiques, the Venice shopping haunt is also eyeing stylish beauty brands to add to its retail roster. Joining Aussie apothecary shop Aesop is Parisian luxury skincare fave Caudalie, which is opening their first West Coast store across the street from Intel's experience pop-up on the eclectic shopping stretch.
Founded in 1995 by husband-and-wife vintners, the French label is known for its groundbreaking anti-aging, paraben-free and vegan formulas. With bestsellers like their Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and La Créme Riche, the brand uses cutting edge technology to extract skin-saving ingredients from grapes grown in a Bordeaux vineyard.
In addition to stocking their famous moisturizers, serums, fragrances and more, the 1,000-square-foot space will feature an outdoor garden for maximum relaxation. (Nice!) No word yet on an opening date; stay tuned for more deets.
