Now that cool French brands Maje and Sandro have settled into their spaces at the Beverly Center, we're impatiently awaiting the fall when LA's very first Uniqlo opens there. The upscale shopping center has attracted yet another global brand, this time Italian designer by way of Moscow Carlo Pazolini, reports WWD. He is slated to open at the high-end mall this summer, making it the brand's first West Coast location.
Per the industry trade pub, the Russian label's 1,460-square-foot shop will open its doors June 1. Inspired by "the modern Italian style of life," Carlo Pazolini is known for their fine leather footwear, handbags and accessories ($175 to $450). In addition to their 14 U.S. stores (including five in New York), the brand also has boutiques in Italy, China, the U.K., and non-imaginary countries like Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.
The real question is, when can we expect LA-loving blogstar Chiara Ferragni to be plastered all over their ads?
