Porsche Design has quietly closed the doors to its Union Square boutique. A reader sent us the tip that the store's minimalist designs were no longer available at 100 Grant Avenue, and a couple of phone calls confirmed that the European brand has indeed pulled out of the neighborhood. If you're in search of Porsche Design's iconic, black leather wallets or a sleek handbag or dress, you'll have to visit either the last standing California boutique in Los Angeles or the outlets in Cabazon. Most of the collection is also available to purchase online.
