One down, two more to go. After a minor delay, Aesop has finally debuted its Silver Lake apothecary. Sandwiched between Shinola and Mollusk Surf Shop (and a few doors up from A.P.C.'s almost-open shop), the Sunset Boulevard boutique quietly opened a few weeks ago and is the Aussie skincare brand's third LA outpost.
The clean and modern interiors were dreamed up by SF-based Randolph Designs; unlike Aesop's DTLA and Venice shops, the "simple [and] natural" Silver Lake space features bright white walls, dark wood fixtures, and black tiling. On the shelves, find the cerebral label's superior skincare, haircare, and fragrances, including its new Resolute Hydrating Body Balm.
Aesop Silver Lake is open daily from 11am to 7pm.
