One of our favorite boutiques in Los Angeles, hip’tique is upping the ante! We always find cute and current key pieces for our wardrobes and homes thanks to the discerning taste of owner Christine Berardi, yet are even more inspired to embrace our glam inner goddesses thanks to the amazing & rare Marilyn Monroe photographs that are now on display for the public in her Santa Monica shop. In the past few weeks these photos have garnered a lot of national press and interest. We just read photographer, Lawrence Schiller’s Vanity Fair cover story about these specific Marilyn Monroe photos and his experiences with MM in the June issue.
The fact that Marilyn’s birthday is approaching on June 1st, as is the 50th anniversary of her death this August, is thrusting her back into the media. Another fun fact is that the house where the photos were taken (on the set of her last completed film “Something’s Got To Give”) is for sale in Los Angeles.
There are only ten copies of the series of these photos in the world and thanks to a partnership with the Duncan Miller Gallery, hip’tique has the only set of these photographs available for viewing on the West Coast!! So stop in to have a look, a browse and maybe in the spirit of MM, a glass of wine while you shop….
