Illesteva opens second retail store in the US

Apr 16, 2015

Accessories brand, Illesteva, on April 7th opened its second retail store in the U.S. on 1329 Abbot Kinney in Venice, California. The store is the first from the brand to open in the western United States.


The 650-square-foot retail location that is housed in a historic 1950s building carries the brand’s signature eyewear —optical and classic frames—, leather bags, umbrellas and more. The store also features a "Build Your Own" area where customers can design and create their own Illesteva frames.
"I think Venice has incredible food, awesome stores, and most importantly, amazing people. We are very happy to make 1329 Abbot Kinney our west coast home," said CEO Daniel Silberman.


Illesteva is the most recent brand to move to Venice's Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Others include Rag & Bone, Toms, GANT Rugger, Steven Alan, Aviator Nation and Alternative Apparel.

For 5 years, Illesteva glasses have been handmade in France and Italy by the world’s leading manufacturers of luxury eyewear. In October 2014, the brand opened its first flagship store in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood on 49 Prince Street.
Silberman announced plans to open 3 more Illesteva stores on the west coast by the end of 2016.
