Abbot Kinney Shopping Itinerary


Venice might be better known for its long sandy boardwalk, shaggy-haired surfers and bronzed, perky bodybuilders, but this beach-side nabe also has plenty to offer in the way of stylish shop spots, particularly along hip strip Abbot Kinney Boulevard.


Here are a few fab finds you should certainly consider sailing into...


Start at stylist go-to Satine, a blue-hued label stable stocked with classic femme-leaning US and international names, including Alexander Wang, Kenzo, Rochas and Thakoon Addition. Don’t miss their gorgeous selection of Shaffer leather bucket bags and Dita shades.


Right next door, you’ll find lovely loungewear newcomer Open the Kimono, for locally handmade and one-of-a-kind yukata that blend traditional Nippon attention to detail with pretty, SoCal prints.


Saunter onwards – via Intelligentsia Coffee for a quick java jolt – and the Japanese theme continues at Tortoise General Store. In this Eastern-influenced homewares haven all of the carefully designed and crafted tablewares, recycled glasses and woven goods are made to last as long as the animal mentioned in the moniker.


If you’d rather outfit your person than your pad, skip along further – perhaps stopping at scent-sational Strange Invisible Perfumes – before hanging right into Main Street. Here you’ll espy III Luxury Collective – the collaborative space of designer shoe box Mona Moore, boho dresses at Pamela Barish and sparkly, stackable finger candy by LFrank.


Still got a spare digit for even more gemmy goodies? Get across to Love Adorned for worldly, vintage-inspired fine jewellery and curated lifestyle covetables. See, who needs Rodeo Drive?
