Just a mere month ago we were giving you the sneak peeks to LA's latest shopping compound, The Platform. Since that time, progress on the Culver City space has been astounding and the roster of retailers is getting chicer by the second.
Aussie body care brand Aesop has officially opened its doors, which means in addition to heading to the cool hub for a sweaty SoulCycle session and some activewear shopping at Kilter (both are already open as well), you can pick up your must-have beauty buys like the brand's beloved Reverence Aromatique Hand Wash (we're obsessed with its scrubby texture) or Fabulous Face Oil.
This marks Aesop's sixth brick-and-mortar in the city (Silver Lake, DTLA, Santa Monica Place, West 3rd Street, and Venice all have shops). Store hours are 11am-7pm daily.
