Following its multi-million dollar revamp, the Beverly Center continues to attract international fashion brands. The latest to join the tourist-beloved retail destination's lineup is cult-cool French label Kenzo, which has opened its first West Coast boutique up on level 7. (Earlier this summer, co-creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim announced they were stepping down after an eight-year reign that helped revive the brand to success.)
Open as of the end of September, the 1,900-square-foot boutique was designed by Italian architect Fabrizio Casiraghi (who also dreamed up Kenzo's shops in Paris) and is decked out in powder blue walls, white and cream accents, and polished chrome fixtures and furniture.
As far as merch, expect to find women's, men's and kids ready-to-wear, footwear, and accessories from the LVMH-owned brand's latest fall/winter 2019 collection inspired by South America and the late Peruvian shamanic artist, Pablo Amaringo. Also on offer is its whimsical adventure-inspired Expedition capsule line and, of course, there's plenty of that infamous tiger logo merch, too.
Following the L.A. opening, the brand — which was founded in 1970 by Paris-based Japanese designer Kenzo Takada and is now helmed by Portugal-bred talent Felipe Oliveira Baptista — is also slated to open an NYC flagship in SoHo. (Tell all of your cool Big Apple pals!)
