NEW YORK — Earnest Sewn has signed a 10-year lease for its first store in the Los Angeles area, to be located in the trendy Malibu Country Mart, a six-acre outdoor shopping complex in the heart of Malibu’s Civic Center. The 1,400 square-foot, freestanding boutique is scheduled to open in May of 2008, after the current tenant, Indiana Joan’s, vacates the space and Earnest Sewn redesigns the interior and exterior.
The new lease comes as Earnest Sewn is set to open its second New York store on Sept. 7, located on the corner of Orchard and Broome streets in the hipster-packed Lower East Side neighborhood. Earnest Sewn’s first flagship opened in 2005 in the Meatpacking District.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
