Today's #MindfulMonday news is brought to us by vegan label Vaute Couture, which opened its first LA pop-up shop on Venice over the weekend. Based and produced in NY, the PETA-approved label debuted its pre-fall collection apparel on Abbot Kinney, where it'll hold court through Wednesday, October 21st.
In addition to offering charming apparel made from innovative and recycled fabrics (like organic linen tops and jumpsuits, retro printed dresses and skirts, unisex waxed canvas jackets, and hats made from plastic bottles), the pop-up also offers fashionable fanny packs by LA's Hipsters for Sisters, Insecta's upcycled fabric footwear, and more. Swing by daily from 11am to 7pm and keep your eye on Vaute's revolving wall mural, which kicks off with local artist Chase's Insta-ready anti-Sea World piece.
