Last summer, we introduced you to Ahlem Manai-Platt, the designer behind Beyoncé and Kendall Jenner's favorite eyewear brand, Ahlem. Although the rising star has a pretty great setup at her Venice home (that backyard is to die for), she exclusively tells us that she's just signed the lease on an official Ahlem studio and store space at 812 1/2 Lincoln Boulevard, right next to Flowerboy Project.
In addition to housing the brand's bestselling eyewear, the shop will also feature a curated selection of accessories and gifts. Considering Manai-Platt's exceptional taste, we're sure that everyone will want to scoop up these hand-selected items.
The Ahlem Venice studio is set to open on Monday, April 11th.
