Remember when we dropped the news that Cali cool line Velvet by Graham & Spencer landed in Brentwood a few months back? The purveyor of luxe basics recently opened the doors to their second-ever space on Venice's Abbot Kinney this week, giving Westsiders another reason to hit up the ever-evolving shopping stretch.
Located right next to hip coffee shop Intelligentsia, the 1,250-square-foot shop unveiled the label's fall collection for men and women, plus their only-in-stores kids merch and an exclusive line of leather clutches and totes. Like their flagship digs, the new Venice boutique's interior boasts the same open and airy aesthetic with bright white walls and minimalist décor to highlight the brand's sleek inventory.
Head to the shop's grand opening bash on August 22nd, when the first 25 shoppers will score a $25 gift card. In the meantime, here's hoping a third Velvet shop will find its way on the other side of the hill soon.
