Downtown—specifically 9th and Broadway—just keeps getting better. Following the opening of Acne Studios's largest store in the world, the iconic Eastern Columbia Building has scored another major retailer.
Neighborhood blog DTLA Rising reports that cool-kid German eyewear brand Mykita is set to open at Eastern Columbia, "replacing the recently shuttered Angelo:Home sitting opposite from high-end Acne Studios and Il Caffe. Mykita will take over the 1,500 square foot space left behind by the former furniture showroom."
This is only Mykita's second-ever stateside store. The first is located in NYC. Check out the brand's very cool offerings here, and stay tuned for more!
