District La Brea gets cooler by the minute. In addition to landing two brotiques this spring, the walkable shopping block has also scored The Trading Post, a French chic-meets-Americana concept shop and flagship of Cali jeanswear brand Dr. Collectors.
Sandwiched between insider-faved Kelly Cole and decor haven A+R, the 575-square-foot boutique boasts wood shelving and furniture as a nod to Dr. Collectors designers Olivier and Teddy Grasset's travels through the Southwest. In addition to stocking the brand's own U.S.-made selvedge denim and apparel, expect to find merch from European labels like French Workwear, Le Minor, Moulin Neuf, Le Laboureur, Vetra and more alongside leather goods, handmade indigo-dyed basics and classic vinyl.
The Trading Post is open daily from 11am to 8pm.
