After two years of offering its romantic silhouettes and tomboy cuts at stylish retailers like Elyse Walker and Satine, Los Angeles-based brand LACAUSA is finally ready to open its very first brick-and-mortar. The shop is set to be unveiled on Thursday, July 9th, and will be located in Silver Lake between Mohawk General Store and Dries Van Noten-approved menswear boutique Mohawk Man.
Malibu-born designer Rebecca Grenell tells us that her "deep connection to Los Angeles's fashion and design lineage, as well as the environmental landscape, greatly influence her aesthetic and inspired the name LACAUSA (LA-CA-USA)." Also meaning "the cause" in Spanish, LACAUSA is committed to creating quality garments under ethical conditions, with its headquarters and factory in Downtown.
As for what to expect at the new store, Grenell reveals that shoppers can look forward to LACAUSA's bestsellers in addition to a curated collection of items from LA-based designers, from Vere Verto's leather bags, to fragrances and jewelry from Mondo Mondo to Janessa Leone hats to Fruitmilk ceramic vessels to Christy Dawn vintage-inspired dresses. Price-wise, clothing will range from $50 to $250, while other merchandise will be marked from $30 for jewelry to $500 for bags.
LACAUSA will be open Monday through Sunday from 11am to 7pm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to hit up the opening party on July 9th from 7 to 10pm, which will be co-hosted by Grenell and Unique USA's Sonja Rasula, and will feature bites from SOO N FOOD, plus drinks and music.
