If you just can't get down with this fall weather and are looking to escape to somewhere toasty, may we suggest making a detour to OndadeMar on Robertson first? The Colombian swim and resortwear label has just opened its first US store outside of Miami, and it's stacked with all the brightly hued, skin-bearing elements one needs to dress for a tropical getaway.
Taking over True Religion's old digs at 130 South Robertson, the Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jessica Alba and Alessandra Ambrosio-beloved brand's 1,300-square-foot space feels more like a beach shack than a standard storefront. Offering water-friendly looks for women, men and kids, this is the first of three stores that OndadeMar plans to open in LA by the end of 2014. Next up: Santa Monica.
