On the retail front, Anna Trzebinski’s highly anticipated Aspen boutique will be opening in July next to Aspen Sports. “Stylish women around the world have shopped Anna’s collection to find beautiful handcrafted clothing and accessories that combine modern sensibilities with traditional ethnic detailing. Born in Germany, Anna has spent her entire life in Kenya. Inspired by the indigenous crafts and traditions of African tribes, Anna’s workshop near Nairobi produces luxurious products imbued with the spirit and pride of the Kenyan people.” [Source]
In the former Pacifica space is Jimmy’s Bodega — a sister restaurant to Jimmy Yeager’s eponymous eatery on Restaurant Row. The new seafood and raw bar restaurant will also serve wine, bottled cocktails, and mezcal throughout the summer on a short-term lease — after that, Jimmy told the Aspen Daily News, what happens will depend on what the new building owner decides to do with the space. (The new owner is Mark Hunt, who has ties to about ten downtown Aspen properties — including the space next door.)
In the Aspen One building at Hopkins and Galena, three more stores are set to open this summer, joining Theory, which has been open for a few weeks. Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino accessories are new to Aspen, while Lululemon has moved from its Mill Street location.
