Happy Socks, the sprightly Swedish brand that once filmed Snoop Dogg's glossy-eyed finger painting sesh, is bringing its bright accessories to LA. We spotted (sorry) the above plywood covering the vacant Craftsman cottage-turned-retail space next door to Warby Parker's optical shop on Abbot Kinney, and it's slated to open next spring.
Formerly a pop-up shop, the 770-square-foot boutique will be Happy Socks's first West Coast outpost and second US location. Like its NYC flagship, expect the space to be filled with the sock brand's printastic, technicolor pairs for women, men, and kids. Stay tuned for more!
