While the interior is a nod to the past, the exterior of replica handbags the store feels firmly rooted in the future; the three-layer facade consists of louver-like stainless steel ribbons over glass over squares of white fabric, which manages to both create an indoor/outdoor feeling and evoke the aesthetic of replica handbags sale the brand's new creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere. Anyone who has darkened the doorstep of the pre-renovation space will immediately notice the comparatively open feel, partly a result of replica mulberry all the natural light and partly thanks to the long, linear staircase that runs in a straight line along the boutique's north wall from the first to third floor. Beverly Hills has no shortage of impressive staircases, to be sure, but this may be the first one that includes handrails wrapped completely in Vuitton's super-soft leather. Another thing you'll notice – returning shopper or not – is the artwork that pays homage to Southern California. Just inside the front door is a 10-foot-tall, bright pink, mixed-media sculpture ("Fkilz," 2012) by L.A.-based artist Aaron Curry. Just to the right of the front door suspended from the ceiling in the three-story-tall window that forms the northeast corner of the boutique is Peter Rogiers' "Ghostwriter," a tangle of stainless steel and aluminum reminiscent of a Santa Ana tossed palm tree. Merchandise-wise, the first floor showcases a collection of "rare and exceptional" pieces including bags and accessories made from exotic skins (ostrich, crocodile and lizard) as well as one of the exclusive-to-Rodeo offerings; a version of replica bags the label's Chain Louise purse with a geometric silver-color inlay in the LV monogram clasp that references the metal ribbons that wrap the store. The most noteworthy part of the third floor may be the least noticeable – unless you're part of the VIP set. It's a salon the size of a Staples Center luxury suite that's curtained from view and boasts its own sitting area, dressing room and glass floor-to-ceiling doors that open onto an expansive terrace with a view of the Hollywood sign in the distance.
