For decades, pond-hopping, fashion-loving American girls high-tailed it to Topshop, desperate for the high-style/low-cost looks extolled by the likes of Kate moss. Now, Angelenos can get their high street fashion fix a lot closer to home. Topshop and Topman have hit The Grove with a 30,000-square-foot, two-story flagship (the fourth in the U.S. and first on the West Coast).
The outpost officially opens on Feb. 14 at 4 p.m., and from 3 p.m. on, there will be a take-over of The Grove. Topshop and Topman will completely transform the area outside the store, capturing the attitude and energy of a true British street party. The afternoon will be full of surprises including free treats, live music and special guests. The celebrations will continue over the opening weekend in store.
The Topshop area houses the trend-led mainline, the Topshop x J.W. Anderson designer collaboration, Leigh jeans, a limited-edition line and an L.A. exclusive: a collection hand-picked by actress Kate Bosworth. The Topman area carries the men’s casual and formal wear collections, an exclusive capsule of 30 luxury sportswear pieces designed by the London in-house design team and the intricately detailed Lux line, which is making its world premiere in L.A. With 300 new pieces arriving at the store every week, you can get all the latest british looks without any of the jetlag. 189 the Grove Drive, L.A., 323.938.1085. thegrovela.com
