This just in: Luxe fragrance label Byredo is headed to LA. After hearing rumors that the Stockholm-based perfumer was eyeing our city for its first Stateside flagship, we reached out to the company and can confirm that it is indeed "looking at retail locations in Los Angeles," though it's keeping mum on exact details. Known for its minimalist-chic packaging, the editor-faved brand's perfumes, colognes, and body products are currently stocked at Barneys. Given that there's been tons of action (and vacancies) on Melrose Place, Beverly Drive, and West 3rd Street, we wouldn't be surprised if those nabes are among the contenders. Stay tuned for more!
