On Our Radar: Summer Bummer

Tags: , ,

Everyone could use a little SUMMER BUMMER in their lives, so it’s a good thing Dream Collective (a favorite Silver Lake store of mine) is hosting a month long pop-up shop from the much loved surf-inspired brand.

Designer, Alexandria Cassanti, is known for her locally made, minimalist designs and sustainable approach to apparel. Hand dyed, biodegradable and compostable cheesecloth t-shirts and tanks are unique summer essentials that are also environmentally friendly. Reversible neoprene swimsuits and wetsuits, iron-on “Sun Burn” and “Le Beach Club” patches, as well as “SUM BUM” cotton t-shirts, will also call this space home for the next month.

Accessories including heavyweight cotton and canvas hand-screened backpacks, neoprene zipper bags and “FACE IT” sunglasses are displayed on pedestals with beach-inspired trinkets sprinkled around the store. The collection pairs effortlessly well with Kathryn Bentley’s (the founder of Dream Collective) colorful hand-made jewelry collection, which in itself  draws me back here again and again.
