The French contemporary brand, which was bought last year by private equity firm KKR & Co. along with the labels Sandro and Claudie Pierlot, has opened stores in the Los Angeles area on Beverly Drive, where Maje has planted its largest U.S. flagship occupying 2,000 square feet, and in Beverly Center with a more typical footprint of nearly 1,065 square feet. The stores are part of a U.S. retail rollout that will take Maje to at least 15 units this year after upcoming stores in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, The Mall at Short Hills in New Jersey, Bal Harbour Shops in Florida, Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Cabazon, Calif., and New York City with a flagship possibly opening in the fall in SoHo.
