If you've ever attended any sort of social gathering in your life, you're familiar with dress codes like "cocktail party attire" or "office appropriate"—and at some point, your shoe panic attack probably involved investing in a pair of peep-toe slingback pumps. We can credit American heritage brand Palter DeLiso for the invention of these footwear godsends, and the recently-revived luxury label has selected Beverly Hills for its first global flagship at 9631 Brighton Way.
Founded in 1927 by designers Daniel Palter (the term "Dapper Dan" was coined after him) and Vincent DeLiso, the Karen Elson-backed brand's space houses a 450-foot-square boutique alongside the company's design studio and corporate HQ. On the shelf, expect to find Palter DeLiso's full fall collection of floral-print flats, satin platforms, patent leather pumps, and more classic styles. Though the store's still undergoing some finishing touches, it's currently soft-opened and welcoming footwear fiends right this minute.
Palter DeLiso is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm and Sunday from 11am to 5pm.
