Sleek, sophisticated, and effortless. So defines the designs of Mansur Gavriel, which explains why the accessories and ready-to-wear label has been a cult favorite for New York women for years. Since its launch in 2012, the NYC-based brand has had street style stars and socialites on waiting lists for some of their must-have pieces. Coveted is indeed an understatement.
After opening two well-curated (and oft Instagrammed) stores in New York, founders Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel have decided to set their pastel-tinted sights on the West Coast, finally debuting a location in LA. While the store on Melrose certainly captures the artful Mansur Gavriel aesthetic, It Girls can now experience a whole new aspect of the brand.
Introducing Café Flora, a dining concept that translates their fashionable ideas into food. Collaborating with Chef Scott Boggs of Tartine Bakery, Rachel and Floriana have developed a menu full of colorful, organic, and creative fare set to meet the needs of their stylish clientele. Boasting both a chic interior and lush outdoor garden area, the cafe will serve up breakfast and lunch options, from soups and salads to pasta and pastries. Needless to say, it's sure to become a see-and-be-seen spot for brunch.
While we wait for them to open an outpost in New York, click through for your first look!
