Salt., Southern Californian Eyewear With Style

salt. Costa Mesa Eyewear 3

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.

A Necklace From Myers Collective

Myers Collective Jenny Myers Point Necjlace 2

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.
