Back in December, celeb stylist and Simone Camille founder Simone Harouche told us that the store she'd love to see open in LA is L'Eclaireur, a mindblowing avant-garde shop with a slew of locations in Paris. The retail gods must have been listening to her request, because word is that founder Armand Hadida is finally bringing the boutique to LA.
Apparel News reports that the opening is slated for next year. While an exact address has yet to be confirmed, we think L'Eclaireur—known for its early support of cult-cool labels like Comme des Garçons, Dries van Noten, and Ann Demeulemeester—would fit right in with DTLA's avant-garde-friendly shopping scene. Stay tuned for more!
