Can this be true? I don’t believe my eyes ! Sound the horns, drop the confetti, release the white doves with signature ribbon and pearl necklaces on, for Lanvin is coming to Rodeo Drive! Dreams do come true (even if they are 5 years late) !
The new Lanvin boutique, at Two Rodeo, is said to be over 6,000 square feet, including an underground VIP entrance. This will be the second Lanvin boutique to open on the West Coast; The first opened last March in Vegas.
This Rodeo Drive boutique in the old Cole Haan store is rumored to have been offered to Lanvin after a deal fell through for a space on Melrose Place (where the new Maria Cornejo store is now). Word has it that 2 Rodeo, the last block of Rodeo Drive on the East side, brought the rate down from $25 to $15 a foot for Lanvin because they are so confident in the foot traffic the hip retailer will bring.
Incase you have any hesitation, let me assure you that this will kick major proverbial ass.
I am also half dying inside, due to the new capsule collection with H&M (video and invites to the VIP shopping event on November 19th below)
Hmmm, I now might have a reason to actually shop on Rodeo !
