In case you missed it, last week Kitson Melrose was graced with a visit from the folks shooting Entourage's highly-anticipated feature film, set to hit theaters next year. A trusty source tells us that the trendy retailer will indeed appear in the movie, and the filming took around five hours.
More fun facts: the scene includes a girlfriend of one of the main characters, as well as 40 extras, including a few Kitson employees. All staffers were asked to sign standard agreements and "definitely understand that keeping the storyline private is important. Kitson is fortunate to film often in its stores, including working on The Bling Ring, and to have celebrity shoppers for whom maintaining privacy is essential; the staff knows how to keep secrets!"
We hear that Entourage has also been spotted shooting in DTLA and a few other local haunts, so it'll be fun pointing these spots out when we see them on the big screen.
