Tamara Mellon debuts in Palisades Village

Tamara Mellon wasn’t planning to open the first brick-and-mortar outpost of her eponymous luxury shoe brand until retail developer Rick Caruso described his vision for Palisades Village. “I had to say yes,” says the co-founder and former chief creative officer of Jimmy Choo. Designed by architect Michael Maltzan, the 400-square-foot boutique is inspired by Mellon’s unparallelled shoe closet. Being neighbors with other local female entrepreneurs, including Anine Bing and Rachel Zoe, at the Pacific Palisades shopping center is a bonus. “It’s truly a one-of-a-kind community,” she says. 15225 Palisades Village Ln., Pacific Palisades, 310-525-1380; tamaramellon.com.
