Sixteen years after opening the doors of her renowned Pacific Palisades boutique, Elyse Walker opened a second store in Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach. Orange County residents could not be any more ecstatic about not making the drive north on the 405. Situated in a historic bank building on the corner of Via Lido and Central Avenue, the 12,000 square foot store features beautifully curated designer shop-in-shops. Before curating high and low, near and far, and designer with contemporary became the norm in the business, the Elyse Walker boutique was doing just that. Mixing McQueen and Chloe with Zimmerman and Frame Denim, the boutique blends it all seamlessly under one roof. If your closet keeps your Valentino blouses in arm’s reach of your Enza Costa tees, why couldn’t a store?
The Lido location features spectacular fine jewelry housed in the bank vault, denim bar, beach shop and salon, offering one of the most premiere, unique and exciting shopping concepts in the country. They carefully select every piece from suede Aquazurra heels to knee high boots displayed amongst Balenciaga clutches and YSL cross-bodies. The space is designed by world-renowned architects Marmol Radziner. The architectural details compliment Elyse’s trademark, feminine yet edgy accents. In addition, the new store will also extend to Elyse’s personal love for art by serving as a gallery for established artists and photographers as well as emerging talent.
Since founding her namesake Pacific Palisades boutique in 1999, entrepreneur, stylist, buyer, and designer, Elyse Walker has paved her way to the forefront of the fashion community. A hybrid of astute fashion stylist and fastidious entrepreneur, propelled by the belief that “every day is a runway.” Elyse brings her keen eye, buying expertise, years of hard work and her being serious about the business of fashion to Newport Beach. Don’t be surprised if you see her in the Lido store hanging up a blouse.
