6 Fresh Finds From The New Citizens of Humanity Pop-Up

 

 

If Los Angeles were a piece of clothing, it would be a pair of designer denim blue jeans, artfully washed and fitted to perfection but laid-back and ready for any occasion.  That’s why there couldn’t be a better place than a Citizens of Humanity pop-up shop to celebrate all things made-in-L.A. and curate the brand’s California-cool-meets-Parisian-chic roots.

The PR showroom-turned-pop-up shop in West Hollywood houses Citizens of Humanity pieces (including items from their upcoming collection) along with clothing and accessories from local brands, like ultra-soft tees from Sundry Clothing and leather bags, socks and leather beaded bracelets from RTH, whose founder René Holguin served as the Creative Consultant for the pop-up space.

Treats and trinkets scattered for sale around the space are made by citizens of L.A., including sea salt and vanilla caramels from Little Flower Candy, stationary and notebooks from Sugar Paper, tables from Environment Furniture’s Shelter Half collective and a collection of coffee table books, including LACMA’s California Design. A custom surfboard designed by local pro surfer Kassia Meador is on display and for sale along with some of her art pieces made by transferring Polaroid onto watercolor.

But amidst all the made-in-L.A. are homages to Citizens of Humanity founder Jerome Dahan’s upbringing in Paris before he moved to Southern California in 1981. French music provides the pop-up’s soundtrack with a bohemian vibe pervading the space as inspired by Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin.

The pop-up shop is open until summer at 8747 Beverly Blvd.
