Travel-minded brand Clark & Madison crafts cool merch for the stylish globetrotter, but they've decided to ditch their wayfaring ways after finding success during last year's ArtsReSTORE pop-up village. As mentioned previously, the LA-based line will continue to hold court in Westwood Village, offering their sustainably-made leather weekenders, dopp kits, wallets, clutches, luggage accessories and more at 10918 Kinross Ave. C&M co-founder Dina Epstein tells us they'll be there for the next several months, and possibly until summer.
In addition to stocking their own made-in-America wares, the label's pop-up also carries men's basics from local fave Grover, accessories from PSC, handmade longboards from Loyal Dean and Cali-inspired footwear from Cordwain. To toast their temp home base, the brand's throwing a grand opening bash tomorrow night—and you're invited!
Tomorrow from 7pm to 9:30pm, enjoy free bites, sips and tunes with Clark & Madison founders Epstein and Frosti Zernow and LA menswear blogger Blake Scott of Anything and Everything. To keep parched partygoers buzzed and caffeinated during the evening affair, Art in the Age's organic Prohibition-inspired cocktails and hipster fave Stumptown's cold brew coffee will also be in the house.
Clark & Madison is open Mondays through Saturdays from 11am to 8pm.
