More on that new Silver Lake men's boutique, Modern Nature: In a recent interview with California Apparel News, founder John Swartz and Stacey Clark of Odilon explain that their line was "designed for comfort" and that they're in no hurry to start a wholesale program.
To ensure that Modern Nature's designs are truly fuss-free for laid-back gents, CAN notes that "T-shirts have been treated with an enzyme wash and a silicone treatment to make the cotton fabric soft to the touch" and "nylon athletic trunks were made with a 13-inch and 15-inch inseam and zippered pockets."
As previously mentioned, the shop also carries THVM denim and Malin + Goetz skincare. Schwartz and Clark reveal that more lines are on the way and that they're "considering opening more Modern Nature stores" in the future. While we wait for expansion deets, look out for the debut of Modern Nature leather wallets and accessories, which are set to roll out at the end of this month.
