Oak To Open 2nd LA Boutique, on Beverly Blvd

Oak, the American Apparel–owned high-fashion chain of boutiques, is on the move.

It will open a second Los Angeles boutique in the next few weeks. However, a specific date has not been announced, said Conor Riley, Oak’s social-media director.

The upcoming store will be located at 7228 Beverly Blvd., which is less than a five-minute drive away from The Grove, one of Los Angeles’ most popular retail centers, Riley said. “While it will certainly look, sound and feel like Oak … Beverly will have its own unique personality as well,” he said.

In March, Oak opened its first Los Angeles store at 910 S. Broadway, across the street from the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

The company also announced it will open its first Japanese shop in Tokyo’s Shibuya district. The shop will offer the retailer’s brands Oak Collection and A.OK along with a curated selection of shoes and accessories.

The 700-square-foot Tokyo store is located above an American Apparel boutique. American Apparel acquired Oak in 2013. Media reports quoted American Apparel founder Dov Charney stating that his company would support Oak through back-office capabilities such as American Apparel’s retail technology and manufacturing support.

Oak also opened a Paris shop this year. The company was founded in Brooklyn, N.Y., in 2005 and also runs Manhattan boutiques.
