Los Angeles is always a favourite destination for the Artesano team. We recently stopped by to take part in the Brand Assembly market - a brilliant platform and event for showcasing our collections to new influencers, stockists and partners.
For us, LA is a city of unique energy and some of the world's best people-watching - attracting an assortment of truly creative characters, all buzzing with ideas and dreams beneath the warm SoCal sun.
We love that Angelenos are adventurous with their style. From their casual street and beach looks, to classic red-carpet elegance, it's always a pleasure to see Artesano hats providing locals with the perfect shade.
During the day, you might see our classic Panamas on the surf crowd at Zuma Beach. Then at night, you might come across our rocker felt styles gracing the heads of the famous (and infamous) in West Hollywood.
Our top tip for shopping:
One of our first stockists and perennial Malibu Country Mart favourite, Canvas Malibu, converges art and fashion in a great gallery-boutique concept. Keep an eye out for our latest collection amidst their leading range of brands. http://www.
Our restaurant recommendation:
True Tuscan dining in the heart of the action on Melrose Ave. For the meat-lover (vegetarians be warned - Chi Spacca is known as a 'carnivore's paradise'!), make sure you order the bistecca fiorentina - heaven. http://chispacca.com
