The iconic Los Angeles boutique retailer Ron Herman, located at 8100 Melrose Avenue, will close its flagship store in a few days’ time. The closure follows those in Malibu and Brentwood in November.
Founded in 1976, initially as a specialty boutique inside Fred Segal, Ron Herman became known as the go-to place for iconic brands and emerging designers. The two-story, 14,000-square-foot Melrose flagship store brought together prestigious brands such as Missoni, Lemaire, Acne Studios, Isabel Marrant, Stüssy, Phipps, Officine Générale, Coperni and Dries Van Noten. In addition to a shoe selection, the store recently opened a vintage section.
