Donna Karan says it best: "I have spent decades dressing people. Now I want to address them." With NY-based Urban Zen — the legendary fashion designer's global lifestyle sublabel, she hopes to do just that. Angelenos can look forward to experiencing the concept brand for the first time this fall with the opening of Urban Zen's debut LA boutique.
Residing at 9045 Nemo Street in West Hollywood (right next door to The Gym on Nemo), Urban Zen LA will be a welcoming environment that feels like you're shopping vacation-ready clothing, statement jewelry, handcrafted leather pieces, and artisan-made decor at Karan's home. "The location will have a Hollywood bungalow and SoCal aesthetic of indoor/outdoor living with a beautiful garden," Karan explains. "A complete kitchen will provide healthy beverage and salads to add to the customer experience."
Something tells us that this will be LA's next Instagrammable space. Urban Zen LA opens August 2016.
