Following up on the success of their flagship Third Street location, upscale LA-based bag and accessories brand Monserat De Lucca just opened a second boutique in Venice, stocked with their classic totes, luxe suede bucket bags, and more. Monserat's reputation as a fine leather goods shop transitions seamlessly to the new location, and Venice seems a perfect match for the brand's high-end boho wares and LA casual vibe.
The new spot will also include MDL's full line of jewelry, featuring their signature sign language pendant necklaces (available for a cool $35), the entire zodiac series ($65-$95), and their anatomy collection ($45-$195), not to mention a great selection of scarves and small leather goods.
Shoppers will immediately recognize the store's light, bright, airy feel and artfully curated setup, although with minor changes. Unlike the flagship, the Venice location does not feature an in-store workshop, but you'll get the same selection and great items.
Monserat De Lucca is open Monday through Sunday from 11am-7pm.
