Don't Miss: Irene Neuwirth
The jewelry designer opens up shop in Los Angeles.
In addition to Jean Prouvé and Gio Ponti–inspired displays of colorful raw-gemstone creations, the first retail outpost by Irene Neuwirth, opening this month in Los Angeles, has an open kitchen with a table for 10. “I’m hoping to cook there, ” says the jewelry designer, who constantly entertains at home. Meal or no meal, visitors are in for a visual feast: The boutique will stock primarily exclusive pieces, including a new pearl collection and hand-painted pendants. And the decor, courtesy of the design firm Commune, features peacock topiaries, Moroccan rugs, a wooden mule, and a horse painting from the Tony Duquette estate. “We want people to feel completely comfortable hanging out all day,” Neuwirth says. “Even if they don’t walk out with some jewelry.”
