The Sage Lifestyle
Angelenos were downtrodden when design and perfume extraordinaire Sage Machado shuttered her Beverly Boulevard jewel box Sage in 2013 to focus on private custom work, after no less than 20 years of serving a star-spangled clientele which included Julia Roberts and Kate Hudson. However, it seems a triumphant return was always on the cards, as only a year later, Machado has unveiled The Sage Lifestyle, a sparkly new concept store in Larchmont Village.
The 800-sq-ft bohemian treasure trove showcases a covetable spoil of galwear and accessories, as well as colourful curios and decor finds that she has collected during her world travels. Keep your peepers peeled for the intricately hand-painted paper mache jewellery boxes from Kashmir, globally-sourced vintage gowns, and whimsical felt children’s toys and mobiles from Nepal. Also not to be missed are Machado’s own creations, such as her latest statement-making jewellery collection Fallen Moon, embellished with semi-precious stones and crystals, and her hand-blended floral perfume oils and fragrant candles. Heaven-scent!
