Culling their wares from around the globe, husband and wife co-owners, Kevin and Bo Carney, are at the helm of this cult-favorite shop’s second location. Expertly curated, the light-filled and effortlessly chic Silver Lake flagship features a mix of internationally renowned designers (such as Isabel Marant and Comme des Garcons), locally grown labels (like Black Crane and Building Block) and the stores’ in-house, all cotton clothing line, Smock. In addition to ladies and mens clothes and shoes, there is an array of thoughtfully chosen accessories—including an impressive collection of jewelry by best selling designer Kathleen Whitaker and sunglasses by The Row. Though mostly a destination for the modern lady, Rodin skin products, Cire Trudon candles and Mariage Frere Vert Marco Polo tea are a few of the items with unisex appeal. Not to be left out is the handful of design books and architecturally astute imported furniture, also for sale throughout the shop.
