Avant-garde style stars will have to wait a hot minute before exploring L'Eclaireur's luxury fashion playground. Although the legendary Parisian retailer's first Stateside boutique was expected to open in March, a quick pulse check on the progress reveals that the three-story space is still in major makeover mode. Zut alors!
A construction worker at the store—located in celeb florist David Jones's former space next door to Stacey Todd—tells us that there's still much work to be done, and that it's possible the store may not open for another year. We've reached out to L'Eclaireur for updates; stay tuned for more.
Update 4/22: A L'Eclaireur rep tells us that "due to a long process of city permits, L'Eclaireur is set to open in fall/winter 2015 and is taking the right amount of time needed to set up this one-of-a-kind space that they want to introduce to and present to their clientele."
