Here’s a way to experience Palm Springs’ stylish scene without stepping foot out of LA. After championing rising designers at her Veri Peri boutique nestled inside the Parker Palm Springs Hotel, owner Peri Arenas hopes to breathe new life into Robertson Boulevard with PERI.A, her second Cali shop.
Arenas, whose grandfather founded the fashionable desert resort and Le Parker Meridien, took over the 2,400-square-foot space formerly occupied by Kitson Men, filling it with a mix of known and upcoming names. Expect to find womenswear, carryalls accessories, and footwear from designers like Derek Lam, Shrimps, Mishra, Mira Mikati, Chateau Maison Rouge, La Contrie, and many more, plus hand-painted Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Hermès bags. There are also high-tech dressing rooms that play stylish films and music videos on the reg, a gift wrapping station, and a comfy outdoor patio for post-retail therapy relaxation.
The space itself was designed by famed Los Angeles interior designer Lynda Murray, who channeled Palm Springs’ midcentury modern aesthetic with sleek wood fixtures, a glass kidney bean coffee table, swanky seating, and more. Scroll through the gallery to see more inside PERI.A.
