Roar Clothing to Abbot Kinney
For its 20th anniversary, Los Angeles–based fashion label Roar Clothing will open its first boutique. The two-story shop will be located at 1410 Abbot Kinney Blvd., at the corner of California Avenue, according to Deepak Vasandani, founder and chief executive of the label.
Roar signed a lease for the space in early February and is scheduled to open sometime this spring. The lower section of the store is located next to the boutique Ruti. The upper floor is located on the grounds of a former events space, and it features a balcony overlooking Abbot Kinney and a fireplace as well as an indoor section that features a hardwood floor. The lower section of the store was part of a former gym space. The building is owned by Abbot Kinney Partners.
The new shop will showcase Roar lines with a more contemporary edge such as Roar Refined for men and Roar E-lec-tric for women. Vasandani said he hopes to open more bricks-and-mortar shops.
Roar is also sold at retailers The Buckle and at Macy’s and offers tops and bottoms for men, women and youth.
