Battistoni is known for dressing Marlon Brando, Humphrey Bogart, and other legendary leading lads at its menswear mecca in Rome, so it makes sense that its first US flagship would land in Beverly Hills. WWD reports that the iconic Italian tailoring brand's expansion plans will begin in LA, where it's set to open in January.
The fashion trade pub notes that the 6,500-square-foot shop's interiors will feature "walnut, leather, bronze, and travertine stone and 17th-century ceiling frescos." As far as inventory, expect to find the Barneys-stocked luxury label's women's and men's collections, including suits, shirting, footwear, leather goods, accessories, and more.
