Another rodeo has arrived in Beverly Hills. After heading legendary Western shop Kemo Sabe, James Anderton has brought a similar city-meets-cowboy vibe to the Golden Triangle with West, which took over insider-faved kid's shop Trico Field's former space (it relocated to Dayton Way back in May).
Located just around the corner from Rodeo Drive on Santa Monica Boulevard, the 1,000-square-foot flagship stocks luxe leather boots from iconic American and Italian brands like Lucchese, Stallion, Alberto Fasciani, and Sartore; sterling silver buckles by Comstock Heritage; and one-of-a-kind knives crafted with rare materials (think wooly mammoth teeth and fossilized brain coral, among others) by William Henry Studio. As far as accoutrements, expect a curated selection of jewelry by Venice-based designer Paula Rosen, Russell Brand-backed jeweler Michelle Marocco, and many more artisans.
Dig it? The store's throwing a grand opening bash on October 9th; shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (310) 470-9063 to add your name to the list.
West is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 7pm and Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
