Pop-up to open next to Aspen Art Museum

Designer retailer Peri.A is coming to Aspen this summer.

Called Peridise, the pop-up located at 601 E. Hyman Ave., next to the Aspen Art Museum, will be open from June through Labor Day.

A company press release says Peridise will fit in nicely with the Aspen crowd.

“Aspen has long been regarded as a luxury playground for the glamorous jetsetters and stylish ‘it’ crowd, while PERI.A is considered as a beacon to the fashion conscious Hollywood elite,” the press release says. “With this winning combination Peri is thrilled to bring a taste of California to Aspen with her most dynamic designers.”

Peri.A is the brainchild of Peri Arenas, formerly of New York and now of Los Angeles.

The shop will offer jewelry, handbags, as well as “in-your-face accessories, pop inspired prints, and clothes that scream contemporary class,” the press release said.
