Warby Parker is no longer outfitting stylish peepers on Melrose Avenue. The brand confirmed that it shuttered its West Hollywood boutique in the La Cienega Design Quarter in January, and that the closure was not related to the coronavirus.
The store opened in April 2017 and featured an original mural by L.A. artist Alia Penner as well as a green room equipped with a photo booth that allowed shoppers to record shareable videos. Warby Parker currently has 20 locations in California, including L.A.-area stores in Beverly Grove, Westfield Century City, El Segundo, Glendale, Pasadena, Silver Lake, Studio City, and Venice.
The space previously housed menswear brand Seize Sur Vingt and before that, cool boutique Beckley. No word yet on who'll take over the prime spot; stay tuned for more.
Warby Parker, 8618 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood, 90069; open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily
