From Apparel News:
Satine Owner Jeannie Lee had been looking to build a new Los Angeles–area shop in Malibu or Venice, but a Venice space opened first. She said she believes the Abbot Kinney neighborhood is right for her angle on luxury.
“We’re trying to bring luxury to Venice in an unexpected way,” Lee said. “We’re mixing the high with the low. There’s no luxe boutique with the Satine point of view.” Satine offers runway-ready dresses from Nina Ricci, little-known indie labels and puckish shorts from the Charlotte Ronson label. Lee has said the store is inspired by Los Angeles style, where “vintage meets luxe.”
