Ever since bringing her '70s-inspired cool to fellow Parisians A.P.C.'s Melrose Place shop earlier this year, we've been wondering which stylish street Vanessa Seward would select for her first West Coast boutique. Turns out it's not far at all from her favorite collaborators, as she revealed in a sly Instagram post last month.

The cult-cool French designer is making her LA debut on Melrose Place this summer, and from the looks of her sneak peek, her shop's interiors will be just as killer as her retro-luxe designs. It's being designed by architect Laurent Deroo, who also dreamed up A.P.C.'s sculptural boutiques.

No word yet on Seward's exact coordinates of opening date; stay tuned for more and see the designer's teaser below.
