Opening its doors at 7975 Melrose Avenue on November 12, the 721 square-feet store is located in West Hollywood in Los Angeles, a popular shopping district for locals and tourists.
The store will carry a full assortment of the brand’s men’s and women’s footwear, as well as a curated selection of fellow California-based designers, from ready-to-wear to accessories collections.
“[The store] is not only special because I’m back home in California, but there is such a vibrant movement happening in California with designers, builders and the creative industry in general,” said designer Angela Scott. “From Los Angeles to Ojai to San Francisco, you can just feel the excitement and I’m stoked to be part of that.”
Launched in 2012, The Office of Angela Scott is known for its signature mensy flats, from lace-up oxfords to monkstrap brogues. The brand later introduced its men’s collection, The Office of Mister Scott, in fall ’13.
Scott opened the store to not only evolve the visibility of the brand, but to grow its current customer base beyond the department store shoe floors.
“The store is also going to be a great way for people to know what The Office of Angela Scott feels like, what it smells like… it’s my way of inviting our customer into my home,” said Scott. “As a shoe designer, sometimes it’s hard to get the whole brand identity, because you just see one product on a shelf. The store is going to give customers a snapshot into what The Office of Angela Scott looks like as a lifestyle.”
The brand is currently carried by retailers like Neiman Marcus, Harrod’s in London and Tomorrowland in Tokyo.
