SoCal designer Charlotte Stone is known for her inventive footwear dreamed up in high-voltage hues, which is why colorful creatives and prismatic It Girls can’t stop wearing her creations. That’s why it’s fitting that the stylish shoe maker’s first-ever LA pop-up shop has landed at Culver City’s Platform, home of one of art star Jen Stark’s trippy rainbow murals.
Open now through Monday, April 30, the zero-waste space (more on that later) stocks Stone’s latest spring/summer ’18 collection of sandals, heels, platforms, and boots alongside exclusive styles typically only available on her e-shop. In addition to shopping the LA-made Ava boot, footwear fiends can also scoop up the designer’s fall ’17 line at up to 50% off while merch lasts.
As far as the decor, Stone tapped a handful of frequent collaborators and artists to fill the shop’s walls and shelves, like Ojai-based fiber artist Annette Heully (who dreamed up a massive weaving inspired by scenes of the Thomas Fire), New York-based womenswear label The Royal Native, and Pacific Wonderland, Inc. (which was founded by Charlotte’s husband, Steve Nasker).
And about the shop’s sustainable TK: Nasker built the fixtures from upcycled materials, while Heully repurposed scraps from the store’s Palapa Lounge Chairs co-designed by Nasker and Stone.
Charlotte Stone at Platform is open Monday through Sunday from 11am to 7pm.
