This Thursday, July 31, CreativeMornings will be hosting a little talk with some folks from Vans. Join them at Think Tank Gallery!
It’s particularly difficult to not be obsessed with glasses in Southern California. It’s almost always sunny that we always have to protect our eyes. That also may explain why there are so many local eyewear houses, which is nothing to complain about since sunglasses are easy to love. I was recently chatting with a friend about this and she alerted me of a new Costa Mesa based, beach angled luxury glasses maker called Salt. They are a brand that hits both the understated and trendy marks, a difficult territory to occupy—but Salt. does it with grace.
Myers Collective is the design focused jewelry brainchild of local Jenny Myers. She has worked as an architect and graphic designer and this Collective is an outlet to express expand her ideas on design onto a smaller scale. Her name may sound familiar from her collaboration with Otaat but we’ve never encountered her work in person until a recent stop into Beverly’s Garde, where a nice little stack of embossed paper held a few of her necklaces in place. Each has a light, ethereal quality that is sophisticated and sharpened by brass hardware: Myers Collective is certainly making necklaces for the understated Angeleno.
Surf brand Katin have released their latest collection which is brilliant, of course. If you haven’t gotten into Summer yet, this should help.
Are you familiar with the work of Julian Zigerli? He’s a hot, young, heavily lauded Swiss fashion designer whose clothing have definitely excited a specific type of flamboyant style hound. His clothing mashes avant garde forms with bold and bright patterns, very often crossing over into fine art fashion. He’s certainly an up-and-coming talent poised to blow up soon but, for now, he’s definitely someone to keep tabs of collection after collection.
One way to get in touch with him is by way of Los Feliz’s Weltenbuerger, the little clothing store with the most exceptional inventory in Los Angeles. Zigerli is one of the brands they carry and, although this sounds crazy, the store is the only US retailer of the designs. What a treat, dudes! To celebrate the latest Spring/Summer collection, we had a little chat about Zigerli with shop owner Bryan Sanderson to hear all about the new collection—and what Angelenos will take from it.
