Paris and New York can’t have all of the fun or all of the good fashion; Isabel Marant just made her West Coast debut on 8454 Melrose Place. Since launching her jewelry line in 1994, she now has 11 stores around the world. Most recently her 1, 335 square foot LA location is to be her sunniest one yet (there’s a ton of skylights). “It’s about atmosphere,” Marant said. Of course every store owner says that, but since Maran’ts aesthetic is one we know so well—it’s somehow minimal, but bursting with personality at the same time—it’ll surely be one of the coolest looking shops to ever open in LA, ever.
Yes, they carry wedge sneakers—so Cali. (Isabel Marant, 8454 Melrose Place, LA, 323-651-1493). —RAY SIEGEL
