It's all happening! At 11am today, Topshop Topman will finally open the doors to its second LA store, located at Glendale's Americana at Brand outdoor shopping center. Although we're sure you've already made plans to enjoy the British retailer's grand opening festivities today through the weekend, we're giving you an exclusive tour of the space so you know exactly what to beeline to when you get there.
One thing to note is that this shop is smaller than its Grove location, but the bright and airy vibe makes it feel more spacious. As for merchandise, Topshop Topman Glendale features Beyoncé's buzzy Ivy Park activewear brand (the second collection arrives this July!), a Petites section, a full range of Calvin Klein underwear (paging Kendall Jenner), denim (there's a new slim style called Orson), an impressive shoe section (remember when we chatted with their specialist?), and tons of men's offerings.
There are two very cool additions that set this location apart from The Grove: 1) a Topshop Beauty section that hosts the brand's popular brow gel, under-eye brightener, lipsticks, bronzers, foundations, and nail polishes, and 2) assistance buttons inside the dressing rooms, so you never have to walk out half naked or yell through the curtain for a new size again. (Both Americana and The Grove locations also offer Personal Shopping and stylist services, if you prefer further privacy.)
After today's special 11am opening, Topshop Topman Glendale will be open Monday through Thursday from 10am to 9pm, Friday through Saturday from 10am to 10pm, and Sunday from 11am to 8pm.
