Pacific Palisades is being transformed into a nexus of West Coast style almost overnight
Dotted with jacaranda, Tabebuia and magnolia trees, the new sustainably designed Palisades Village, which launches Sept. 22, is a picturesque milieu, providing alfresco dining and a pampered moviegoing experience along with sophisticated shopping in intimate yet well-edited boutiques. Elyse Walker (elysewalker.com), a fashion retail pioneer in the Palisades, unveils a new concept, Towne by Elyse Walker, offering laid-back luxe looks from brands such as ATM, Moncler and Ulla Johnson.
In her inaugural boutique, Jennifer Meyer (jennifermeyer.com) showcases her delicate jewelry that’s handmade in Los Angeles, including diamond pavé leaf necklaces and mini bezel chains. A staple of effortlessly cool wardrobes, Andrea Lieberman’s A.L.C. (alcltd.com) premieres its first California store while marking the brand’s 10th anniversary. Following the opening of its shop in San Francisco’s Jackson Square, Australian swim and fashion label Zimmermann (us.zimmermannwear.com) displays its romantic designs in its second L.A. location. Vince (vince.com) highlights its streamlined ready-to-wear in a serene space featuring a reflection pool.
Known for its fair-trade, artisan-made goods, such as acacia wood plates from the Philippines and hand-drawn mudcloth pillows from Mali, The Little Market (thelittlemarket.com) unveils its first brick-and-mortar store. “We are looking forward to giving shoppers the chance to see the beautiful craftsmanship of these one-of-a-kind pieces in person,” says Hannah Skvarla, who co-founded the company with Lauren Conrad. 1030 N.
