Earlier this month, & Other Stories told us that it "would be a dream to open a store on the West Coast." Now that its minimalist sister label has debuted in OC (don't forget that DTLA pop-up), we can exclusively confirm that H&M's higher-end spinoff is also opening a boutique at South Coast Plaza in fall 2016.
The luxury shopping center tells us that & Other Stories is indeed landing on its Costa Mesa turf, but no word yet on the exact location (this directory listing also offers further proof). Given that the label is already familiar with LA's talents (like bag maven Clare Vivier, cool-girl blogstar Jayne Min, and new collaborators Rodarte), we're crossing our fingers that a City of Angels outpost is in the works, too. Keep your eyes peeled here for more!
