The next time you explore Highland Park's stylish York Boulevard, make it a point to wander east to Figueroa. New boutique Nonna quietly opened a month or so ago, bringing minimalist and sleek womenswear by indie designers t the cool NELA 'hood.
Founded by film & TV costume designer Olivia Perez, the 600-square-foot shop reflects "the Los Angeles woman as I know her—someone who is modern, feminine, [and] appreciates ease as well as sophistication," she tells us. The interiors were inspired by Perez's childhood in Miami with touches like an '80s glass table on a oversized plush rug and pastel pottery filled with greenery. As far as merch, expect to find apparel, footwear, and accessories by labels like Rachel Comey, Jesse Kamm, A Détacher, Lizzy Disney, and many other lady-led brands.
Swing by the shop Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 6pm (closed Sunday and appointment-only Monday); the shop's currently hosting a spring/summer sale with up to 50% off merch.
