Earlier this month, architect and designer Rafael de Cárdenas revealed the eye candy to expect at Nasty Gal's second location at 3rd Street Promenade. Now, the e-tailer has finally shared the news we've all been waiting for: Nasty Gal Santa Monica opens next Friday, March 27th, and the 9,000-square-foot "Nasty Galaxy" will include a denim bar.
As mentioned, Cárdenas worked with founder Sophia Amoruso to create a "completely different vibe" than the Melrose boutique, offering a neutral palette, "clear walkways [that] will lead shoppers through the different branding experiences" and a "central cage-like gathering areas where special items are displayed." There will also be deep blue carpeting and one-way mirror glass in the fitting rooms that the architect calls "really beautiful and elegant."
Stay tuned for opening event details!
