Just in time for poolside movie nights, Zimmermann is set to open its Melrose Place boutique ahead of schedule. Originally expected to open this fall, the cult-fave Australian brand tells us its new LA flagship will debut next Thursday, July 9th.
As we revealed earlier this year, the ready-to-wear and swimwear label is taking over Connoisseur Antiques's former digs. Designed by Oz-based firm Meach Nockles Macqualter, the 3,000-square-foot space has kept most of its original features—like vaulted ceilings and sunlight-welcoming domes—to stay true to the luxe street's high-end vibes. Once open, the Melrose Place flagship will be Zimmermann's second LA outpost after its Robertson shop, which we're told will remain open.
