Denizens of the Peninsula and parents of Stanford students, gird your wallets because Intermix is coming to Palo Alto. The luxe lifestyle brand is opening in the Town & Country Village, at the corner of El Camino and Embarcadero, on May 24. Founded by CEO Khajak Keledjian twenty-one years ago and bought by Gap just over a year ago, the boutique chain specializes in offering exclusives from high-end brands. And the Palo Alto opening will bring three new exclusives, available in the new store and online only.
The first exclusive collab is between Parisian brand Eleven Paris and typographical designer and artist, Pieter Ceizer, for limited-edition sweatshirts. The style created for the Palo Alto store features a custom "City of the Future" design and will retail for $98.
The store will also exclusively carry a flash drive necklace from luxury jewelry brand Vita Fede, made of Swarovski crystals, 24K rose gold hardware, and an 8GB flash drive and will retail for $1,198.
An original tote bag from local artist Heather Day is the third exclusive. The first 250 Palo Alto shoppers will receive the tote, along with artwork designed by Day, free with purchase. So there you have it. Three solid reasons to check out the new store in T-minus 11 days.
