Aesop's Cali takeover continues. After opening its first LA apothecary shop in Abbot Kinney last year, the cult-fave Aussie brand debuted in Downtown this spring. In addition to bringing its antioxidant-infused skin, hair, and body products to West 3rd Street and Culver City soon, the "medicinal chic" company's also opening an outpost in Silver Lake.
Located next door to the new Mollusk Surf Shop and a few doors up from A.P.C.'s soon-to-open boutique, the Melbourne-based bookworm brand is taking over a former electronics shop for its fifth SoCal location. No word yet on the exact opening date, though DTLA's staff tells us Aesop Silver Lake and West 3rd (both of which are currently hiring!) are slated to open "in the next two months."
