After revealing her approximate coordinates last week, we now know the precise location of Vanessa Seward's first-ever U.S. boutique. The '70s-inspired designer let the cat out of the bag on Instagram with the below snap of her Melrose Place address:

Seward — who's spent time at Chanel, Saint Laurent, and French-Italian designer Loris Azzaro — is taking over the space formerly occupied by Marc Jacobs's Bookmarc (the shop moved next door, replacing his men's boutique). As promised, she'll be just a short stroll away from her fellow Parisians and frequent collaborators over at A.P.C.

We've still yet to receive a grand opening date for the shop; the plywood teases a summer 2016 opening, so we're guessing the doors will open very, very soon. Stay tuned!
