LOS ANGELES — Rabeanco is playing to its strengths with its launch strategy in the U.S.
The Hong Kong-based accessories brand is starting retail in the U.S. this year with three stores in California, where there is a concentration of Asian shoppers. The first store opened Wednesday at the Westfield Santa Anita shopping center in Arcadia; the second one will bow in late August on North Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills, and the third, at Westfield Valley Fair in Santa Clara, will join the store roster by mid-November. The stores’ sizes range from 1,500 to 2,000 square feet.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
