A PR Office That Rivals a Weekend With the Girls

Jun 11 2014 - 3:09am

After starting her career as one of the founding members of Shopbop [1], Alle Fister seemed destined for professional greatness. Just two years later, in 2006, she trusted her entrepreneurial instinct and took a risk by leaving Shopbop to open Bollare Communications [2]. Today, Alle runs her bicoastal fashion, lifestyle, and celebrity PR firm from Bollare [3]'s West Hollywood office. Needless to say, it's packed with enough style inspiration and interactive nooks to induce some serious office envy. See for yourself!

In the lobby, Fornasetti's gorgeous malachite-print wallpaper covers two walls (both spanning over 40 feet!) — quite the first impression.

Instead of choosing one oversize light fixture for the lobby, glass sphere pendants offer a completely unexpected effect. The trick? Staggering and hanging them at different heights.

Between the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and mirrored reception desk, we wouldn't mind waiting in this lobby.

When Alle first scouted the space, she was able to look past the faux-brick wallpaper, choppy floor plan, and crazy textured carpeting and hone in on the real selling points: an abundance of natural light, square footage, and a parking lot.

Parking-lot perk aside, Bollare's neighbors aren't too shabby either. "From being across the street from Bollare partner Roche Bobois to being next door to Lemonade (a favorite team-member lunch spot) to being just up the street from splurge-worthy fashion brand Stella McCartney, our neighborhood inspires us daily!" says Alle.

Who needs wallpaper when you can DIY [10] the look with metallic paint? Paired with a Gray Malin beach print, they become the perfect backdrop to Alle's office.

Alle's Missoni chairs are one of her most beloved design possessions. "In my personal office I have two sets; one set is a vintage find we recovered, and the other I have had for the eight years we’ve had Bollare," says Alle. Lucky girl!

In Bollare's in-office showroom, threaded LED lights around the shelves and jewelry cases make showcased items pop.

Bollare's beauty bar is an example of yet another enviable office feature! It serves as a mini makeup studio for clients like GHD North America and Kevyn Aucoin. We're picturing the mani-pedi party possibilities!
