Carl Louisville, the mastermind behind the now-closed high-end avant garde Arts District boutique Guerilla Atelier is setting his sights on a new project, and heading further west. California Apparel News reported that the creative director, who has been in the luxury fashion industry for over 25 years, is set to open a new store at the Westfield Century City Mall on May 16.
Simply named Carl’s Atelier, this new boutique will feature luxurious pieces in a similar vein as the downtown store that preceded it. The store will take up a 2,700 square-foot space in the shopping center and will carry lines including its own eponymous Private Label Collection and Guillermo, and project from Los Angeles-based architect Mark Rios. Along with clothing, it will also offer art, home décor and wares, jewelry and fragrances.
Though Louisville made the downtown Arts District home for a while, he is no stranger to the area surrounding the Westfield Century City Mall. Prior to opening Guerilla Atelier, Louisville served as the director of the Prada Epicenter flagship on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.
