As suspected, Ron Robinson has returned to Santa Monica via a non-Fred-Segal-related flagship on 5th Street. Open as of today, the innovative 5,500-square-foot space offers unique items across men's, women's and children's fashion, as well as beauty, home, accessories, jewelry, books (we dig the setup above), and tons more.
The legendary retailer tells us that "Ron has exclusive products across all categories and he's designing with an intense lifestyle lens to give residents and tourists alike a destination to not only shop, but to spend time and interact with each other and their community." The first example of Ron's interactive kick comes in the form of a huge, open-to-the-public, opening bash next Thursday, December 4th from 6-9pm. The event will include a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Chamber of Commerce, along with appearances by blogger fave Anine Bing, Lisa Salzer of Lulu Frost, and Claiborne Swanson Frank. Want on? RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the list.
Ron Robinson Santa Monica is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 7pm and Sunday from 12 to 6pm.
