“For years, it was my personal favorite spot anytime I traveled through Los Angeles. I’d stop in to see their latest curated designer brands, and to pick up a few fun things to wear while in town.

Hafif said the upcoming line of fashion accessories and handbags will “speak to the Hollywood culture” and launch in spring 2023. The merchandise will be carried at the Fred Segal stores and on, and will be offered for wholesale distribution through department and specialty stores.
