There's still work to be done at Club Monaco's first LA men's boutique. In addition to unveiling its pretty renovated women's shop at the Beverly Center late last year, the urban-luxe lifestyle label snapped up Euro footwear brand Carlo Pazolini's old space for its standalone gents shop, which staff tells us will open in August.
The 1,460-square-foot space is located next door to Express Men and across the way from the Cali-obsessed brand's Chanel-filled womenswear space. Club Monaco has already rolled out dedicated menswear stores elsewhere, including in New York, Boston, London, and Hong Kong (San Francisco is coming soon, too); expect the LA outpost to mirror the NY-based brand's cool dad closet concept with wood paneling and antique-inspired decor. No word yet on an exact opening date; stay tuned.
