OPENING CEREMONY

FINDINGS Just went to L.A. over the weekend and got a chance to finally check out Opening Ceremony. I definitely recommend everyone go to check it out just to experience the retail space. The store is “a sprawling space of hallways and separate rooms, the shop’s inspiration stems from the experience of driving the L.A. freeways. Also featured is a new concept of boutique shopping: Branded shop-in-shop’s within Opening Ceremony L.A.’s second-floor “Mini-Mall.” Individual brands have created their own atmosphere and individual retail environments.”
