Frederic Malle opens new boutique in Los Angeles

Parisian perfumer Frédéric Malle has opened in Los Angeles at Melrose Place its first West Coast store location which is the brand’s ninth freestanding boutique. The store which covers 1,200-square-feett was designed by LA-based artist and illustrator Konstantin Kakanias. He created black-and-white botanical frescoes in two rooms of the store and shelves were arranged around the artwork. In another part of the store is a mirrored corridor that leads to a more private space, which is decorated like one of Malle’s homes, including a yellow sofa reminiscent of the one in his Long Island home.
