Inside the Rubin Chapelle store

This month New York-based womenswear and accessories line Rubin Chapelle hits the beach with its first West Coast flagship store in the Malibu Country Mart. Designers Kip Chapelle and Sonja Rubin bring their signature styles to the space, which was constructed by Selldorf Architects' Annabelle Selldorf (who also conceptualized the New York boutique). Taking a cue from Gotham’s urban landscape, the minimalistic gray and white design features a “Gallery Wall” to showcase oversize photos and art curated by various collaborators. In addition, Rubin Chapelle’s sleek eveningwear, butter-soft leather bags and silk basics will hang on angled clothing racks made to resemble galactic constellations. Loyal to his roots, Chapelle says, “We love California, but with this store we’re bringing a taste of New York to Malibu.” 23410 Civic Center Way, D3, Malibu, 310-243-6285
