Like fellow multi-tasking mastermind Kelly Wearstler, creating l'objets d'intérieurs was not enough for Elisabeth Weinstock. Three years ago, the local designer turned her eye for exotic skins towards accessories, creating everything from crocodile clutches to python-covered condom boxes to boa skin soccer balls and more, all of which charm her one-year-old boutique on West 3rd Street. The Jessica Alba- and SJP-backed designer's toasting her hometown with an exclusive capsule collection available only at her luxe LA flagship, and she's offering us the first peek at her glorious goods.
In addition to stocking the only-in-LA range of clutches and carryalls ($735 to $1,135), Weinstock's shop also carries her collab with VK Killie, a line of decadent gem-embellished pouches made of vintage European gloves. See it all after the jump and pencil in a visit to her seriously inspiring maison-turned-shop soon.
