Looks like Downtown is due for another epic neighborhood block party soon. Now that Tanner Goods is expected to open next month and OAK NYC is swiftly prepping its Sparkle Factory digs, cool French fashion brand A.P.C. has finally secured its spot at 9th and Broadway. Our pal Brigham Yen reveals the cult fave label is taking over art gallery and framer Vista Art Galleria's former space at 123 W 9th St, right next door to Aussie apothecary Aesop's pop-up shop.
As mentioned previously, the DTLA boutique is part of A.P.C.'s Stateside expansion, which includes a massive Melrose Ave upgrade and a new Silver Lake location soon. The brand's Downtown spot is expected to open this spring; keep your eyes peeled here for more deets. Which DTLA store are you most excited for?
