Over the weekend, a group of tenants joining Palisades Village when it opens this September were revealed, including Gornik & Drucker, Alo Yoga, Cynthia Rowley, St. Frank, Paige and Village Optic.
Gornik & Drucker, founded nearly 30 years ago by William Gornik and Harry Drucker, is a full-service barbershop that offers traditional hairstyling and shave services. The Beverly Hills location also offers shoeshine services.
“Spreading mindful movement, inspiring wellness and creating community” are the goals of Alo Yoga, which offers a line of street-to-studio yoga clothing for men and women.
Cynthia Rowley, “a leading global lifestyle brand sold in branded collection boutiques, as well as in department, specialty and online stores worldwide,” will open a third West Coast location, joining Malibu and Newport Beach. In addition to clothing, the brand currently offers surf and swim, beauty, jewelry, fragrance, shoes, offices supplies, tech accessories and more.
St. Frank offers a line of home luxuries from artisans around the world. “Our handmade products embody the authentic cultural heritage of the communities from which they originate,” according to the St. Frank website.
“We love bringing the St. Frank home to life with a physical space where customers can experience the products in a wholistic way, and there’s a really special experience of coming into our stores and touching and feeling the products in person and learning the story behind each piece,” St. Frank Founder Christina Bryant told the Palisadian-Post.
“Pacific Palisades is near our existing customer base, and we’re excited to bring the in-store experience to both those experiencing St. Frank for the first time and long-time supporters of the brand.”
Paige, which operates stores in Brentwood, Malibu and The Grove, offers a lifestyle collection of premium denim jeans, as well as apparel for men and women. The brand was founded by Paige Adams-Geller—a USC graduate and former Miss California.
Village Optic is a full-service optical boutique for high-end frames and lenses, which will offer pieces from brands including Garrett Leight, Gucci, LA Eyeworks, Lindberg, MYKITA, Vuarnet and Luxuriator by Franco.
Also joining Palisades Village: Cuyana. Founded by Karla Gallardo and Shilpa Shah, Cuyana operates with the philosophy of “fewer, better.”
“We create timeless collections for the modern woman, through carefully selected fabrics, precise silhouettes and attention to detail,” the website reported.
Cuyana aims to empower women—by selecting “Lean Closet” at checkout, the brand will send a linen bag to fill with items that will be donated to victims of abuse through a partnership with H.E.A.R.T.
Cuyana currently operates three stores: San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City. The LA location is on Abbot Kinney Boulevard.
With these announcements, just a few tenants remain to be confirmed. The Post will continue to report the latest until Palisades Village opens in 30 days.
