Pasadena continues to kill it. Following openings from cool kids like Mohawk General Store, Cop. Copine, Vince, and Scotch & Soda, the rising retail 'hood has just unveiled Lou & Grey's first SoCal shop. It's located in Lululemon's former space at 110 West Colorado Blvd.
"I grew up in Pasadena, so it is very close to my heart," explains creative director Austyn Zung. "There is an exciting creative movement going on in LA right now. Lou & Grey embodies this creative energy and the effortless laid-back vibe of California...it seems like the natural choice." Owned by ANN Inc. and born out of LOFT Lounge, the airy boutique features lightweight linens, breathable terry jackets, and textured lounge pants—aka grab-and-go basics with a polished twist.
Lou & Grey is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 9pm and Sunday from 12 to 6pm.
