A.P.C. has been pretty tight-lipped about the precise opening dates for its Silver Lake and Downtown boutiques, both slated to open this year. We checked up on the progress of the cult-fave French label's DTLA shop, where construction has finally begun.
In addition to taking over the space formerly occupied by Vista Art Gallery, the brand also scored Aesop's old pop-up apothecary at 125 W. 9th Street. A crew member tells us the shop will "hopefully" open this April, but an exact day has yet to be set.
