Iconic Italian Brand is Latest Luxury Retailer to Join Center
Joining the ranks of Louis Vuitton, Burberry Brit and Tiffany & Co., Emporio Armani is the latest luxury brand coming to Santa Monica Place, Macerich’s three-level, open-air destination that now defines the top urban beach shopping experience in Los Angeles.
Emporio Armani is set to open at Santa Monica Place Saturday, Nov. 17. This is the first Emporio Armani store on L.A.’s Westside, and only the third Emporio Armani store in Southern California.
“Santa Monica Place continues to be a powerful draw for top retail brands and shoppers from around the corner and around the world,” said Julia Ladd, property manager, Santa Monica Place. “A beautiful project in an exceptional trade area, this destination continues to attract one of the most robust retail collections anywhere in the country.”
Emporio Armani delivers a contemporary take on the fast-growing, fashion-forward clothing and accessories brand, Giorgio Armani, which has long been synonymous with high fashion. The international Italian fashion house offers designs for men and women, including shoes, watches, jewelry, accessories and eyewear.
Guests of Santa Monica Place enjoy an exciting array of retailers that also includes Tory Burch, Kitson, Nike, CB2, Michael Kors, Ted Baker, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Coach, True Religion, Joe’s Jeans and more, along with department stores Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom. Also new to Santa Monica Place this summer and fall are Aveda Azure Salon, Free People, Lorna Jane, Marbles: The Brain Store, and Premier.
A unique element of Santa Monica Place is the rooftop Dining Deck, which offers ocean views and a carefully selected set of chef-driven restaurants and quick-casual dining options. The center’s full restaurant line-up includes Sonoma Wine Garden, Blue Stove, La Sandia Mexican Kitchen and Bar, Pizza Antica, True Food Kitchen and Zengo.
The urban beach experience is a major design focus of the approximately 525,000 square-foot Santa Monica Place, located just two blocks from the ocean and adjacent to the popular Third Street Promenade.
