Kelly Wearstler’s evolution from interior designer to doyenne of all things design, from fabrics to fur coats, has reached another milestone today with the opening of a store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles.
After searching the city since the beginning of the year for the ideal spot for her first store, Wearstler settled on a 2,800-square-foot space around the corner from her La Cienega Boulevard offices because of its proximity to a strong collection of contemporary labels such as Theory, Helmut Lang and APC. Not surprisingly, for someone who spent the better part of her career working on houses and hotels, Wearstler also gravitated toward the location’s architecture with its sense of volume and generous natural light.
