Ever since & Other Stories crossed the pond in October 2014, opening its first New York City store and launching e-commerce in the U.S., we've been dedicated fans of H&M's cooler sister brand. The shop is a go-to for versatile, affordable wardrobe staples with a quirky touch, as well as covetable accessories, footwear and beauty products. It has also released a steady stream of delightful collaborations with some of our favorite independent designer brands including Rachel Antonoff, Clare Vivier and, most recently, Rodarte.
Currently, & Other Stories only has two U.S. brick-and-mortar locations in New York, but on Thursday the brand announced plans to open two new shops in Southern California this fall. The first will open at 370 North Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills at a self-standing building with 5,700 square feet of retail space. A second location will open at South Coast Plaza, an upscale shopping mall in Orange County.
Stay tuned for more exact details as to exactly when the shops are due to open. We have a feeling it will be worth the wait.
