Following last week’s news that FRENCH would be filling the space at Palisades Village left vacant with the closure of Botanica Bazaar for a retail residency, Flannel will host a pop-up in the space two doors down that once housed mini mioche.
“We are pleased that the Flannel pop-up has opened in the space formerly occupied by mini mioche,” a representative from Caruso shared. “Their official opening date was Saturday, October 3.”
Flannel offers a range of items, from dresses to essentials, tops and evening wear.
“The Flannel story started in 2006 with a simple silk slip, which to this day continues to be the signature piece that underpins every collection,” according to the brand’s website. “Flannel Designer Kristy Lawrence’s appreciation for effortless elegance and exquisite finishes has been the keystone of Flannel’s continued success.”
Flannel describes itself as “a play on the simplicity of French girl chic with an elusive off-duty attitude.”
Flannel boutiques first opened across Australia and the United States, with flagship spaces in New York City and Los Angeles.
“With two showrooms, one on the East coast and one on the West coast of America,” the website continues, “Flannel is also enjoying the success of luxury stores carrying the collection.”
“Flannel is excited for the pop-up opportunity,” a representative from the brand shared. “[Lawrence] has enjoyed spending time in the Palisades while visiting from Australia.”
According to the Flannel website, the Palisades Village iteration joins U.S. storefronts in Venice and Santa Monica, as well as a New York City location that is relocating and slated to reopen in fall. There are 10 additional locations throughout Australia, as well as two menswear stores in Cottesloe and Albert Park.
Both mini mioche and Botanica Bazaar closed their Palisades Village doors at the start of summer 2020, following several tough months of closures due to Safer at Home orders in response to the pandemic.
Both tenants had opened with the development in September 2018.
Flannel’s residency will continue through the end of the year, according to Caruso. Current hours are Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., as well as Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“We believe there is a strong affinity to the Australian lifestyle, including the effortless style of comfort and understated elegance,” the Flannel representative concluded of expanding to the Palisades.
