Sutton Stracke is joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next season, and she recently opened up a boutique in West Hollywood. Sutton is a philanthropist and is set to be the newbie next season on the RHOBH. She’s friends with RHOBH star, Lisa Rinna. Sutton is a native of Augusta, Georgia and she is known for being a great hostess and party planner. According to The Los Angeles Times, Sutton said of opening a boutique, “I’ve been thinking about it for a decade. I’ve always wanted to have a traditional retail clothing store that blended in art, furniture, jewelry and everything I love.”
Sutton opened up last month, in September. It features couture pieces by Los Angeles designer August Getty, who had recently moved his atelier to Paris. It also showcases pieces from local designers including Monica Mahoney and Amber Sakai. Sutton said she wanted to support artists in her 2,000 square-foot store space. She plans on hosting galleries, and right now works from Helmut Newton are on display.
Sutton is also a collector of Murano glass, so she bought lamps and chandeliers from the Venetian glassmakers in Italy. Sutton also has English sterling silver and stationery and cards from Kat McCall Papers. The wallpaper is based on a watercolor painting of a Cherokee rose from Mimi Couture.
Sutton shared, “I want this place to feel like a home, and will be hosting events with chefs as well as book signings.” She is going to carry the brand Amedeo, whose pieces have been worn by pop icon, Madonna. The prices start at less than $100 for stationery, and most pieces range from $400 to $2,500 for fashion items.
Congrats to Sutton! The boutique looks beautiful. I’m looking forward to next season of the RHOBH!
