Inside Kelly Wearstler’s Flagship Boutique on Melrose
As a designer Kelly Wearstler has conquered nearly every category imaginable. From magnificent residences, hotels, resorts and restaurants to fabrics, rugs, tabletop, bedding and home accessories, she has brought her signature style of modern glamour to the masses. Last Fall she added fashion designer to her list of credentials with the launch of her first ready-to-wear collection and stunning retail boutique in West Hollywood which serves as a showcase for the world of Kelly Wearstler. The 2,800-square-foot shop on Melrose brings her fashions, home goods and interior design together under one roof and, of course, Kellly designed every inch of the store’s interior and exterior spaces. Outside, the grey facade features brass porthole-style windows, a precious jewel encrusted door handle and a giant, shiny brass ball that sits atop the roof as a shining beacon of her design empire. The store’s interior exudes glamour and drama with loads of antiqued mirror, brass, marble, leather and an abundance of artwork and sculptures. She chose an ebony and ivory color scheme to allow the pops of color from her fashion collection to stand out. Aside from her clothing, jewelry and home goods, all of the furnishings and accessories that adorn the space are available for purchase. I was lucky enough to pop by and take some photos of the store during my visit to LA in December. It truly is a design lovers’ paradise and walking inside invoked sensory overload. There was so much to look at, touch, feel and experience. I loved getting a chance to see her her entire fashion assortment so perfectly curated. My favorite pieces were the brightly colored silk blouses in dip dyes and tie dye as well as her brass necklaces and rings which are insanely beautiful. I wanted every single piece! Have a look at the photos below and if you’re in the area, walk, don’t run to Kelly Wearstler on Melrose. It’s flourishing with inspiration!
