Despite the baseball diamond drama going down between the Giants and the Dodgers (which is sadly getting waaay too serious), there's more proof that the haterade hasn't spilled onto the fashion field. After digging Venice's beachy-cool vibes, Bay Area-based basics brand Marine Layer—which already spins its custom fabrics right here in LA—hit the road in a 1969 VW bus (the coolest company car ever!) to open its first SoCal shop in the easygoing enclave's main shopping stretch of Abbot Kinney last Friday.
The roughly 1,000-square-foot space features the eco-friendly label's collection of super-soft men's and women's merch ($35 to $145), all made from 100% recycled beachwood. Decked out in rustic-meets-retro Cali decor, the shop offers outerwear, tees, skirts, dresses and accessories and more.
