Gigi C Bikinis, the luxury swimwear collection founded by Gigi and Tina Caruso, hosted a grand opening party for its first pop-up store at The Grove in Los Angeles on May 17. Guests were treated to manicures by Olive & June and an onsite towel monogramming station, along with Sunshine Lattes and Chamomile Berry Iced Tea from Alfred Coffee & Alfred Tea Room and custom mocktails from Pressed Juicery. Celebs in attendance included Ashlee Simpson, Courteney Cox, Evan Ross, Jamie Chung, and Rachel Zoe.
Now open through May 29, 2018, the 200-square-foot space offers a selection of the brand’s chic separates and modern one-pieces, known for their clean lines, architectural shapes, laser-cut details, and luxurious fabrics. All Gigi C styles are designed to be equal parts fashionable, flattering, and functional. The pop-up features a mix of Gigi C’s most popular silhouettes including the Gianna one-piece with bold cutout shapes, the chic and inventive Amanda suspender set, and the elegant Ella bandeau bikini top which can be styled up to 15 different ways.
The 10-day pop-up also features a series of interactive experiences that will be open to the public, including Bloggers Who Brunch on May 19, Sunset Yoga in The Park with Alo Yoga on May 23, complimentary manicures from Olive & June on May 26 from 2 – 5PM and a custom Gigi C Bikinis beach towel with every purchase of $200 or more. Baby2Baby is the exclusive charity partner, with 10% of all sales from the Gigi C Bikinis pop-up benefitting the charity.
