Curve's massive lifestyle shop at Culver City's retail-happy Platform won't open until next spring, but there's an already-built shopping center that'll reap the benefits of founder Nevena Borissova's eye for high-end fashion much sooner. Next week, the legendary luxury boutique's latest outpost debuts at the Malibu Country Mart, making it Curve's third LA store and fifth US location.
Slated to open next Wednesday, October 1st, the shop is taking over the 1,400-square-foot space formerly occupied by Italian home goods boutique Luce della Citta. Mirroring its other shops, the store will feature an industrial-chic art gallery vibe with marble surfaces, concrete flooring, exposed beams, and track lighting. As far as merch, the boutique will debut with fall/winter apparel collections by cult-cool labels like Acne, One Teaspoon, Pomandere, Proenza Schouler, Alessandra Rich, and many more, plus luxe accoutrements from Rona Pfieffer and LA's own Jacquie Aiche, among others.
Curve Malibu Country Mart will be open daily from 10am to 6pm.
