Quel dommage: Last week, A.P.C. and Isabel Marant bid adieu to one of their chic compatriots on Melrose Ave in West Hollywood. Just over three years after opening her LA flagship on the luxe retail stretch, French designer Vanessa Bruno shuttered her only US store last Thursday.
Sadly, staff tells us there are no plans to reopen the store elsewhere in the City of Angels anytime soon. No word yet on who will take over the designer's vacated digs—and the handful of empty storefronts across the street or Kanye's former pop-up space, for that matter—but at least we can look forward to the Olsen twins' highly anticipated The Row boutique, oui?
