Men’s Pop-Up Shop: Shelter Half
March 16, 2012 | by —Michelle Ward | Homepage
Located among South La Brea’s stretch of design stores, Shelter Half is a temporary men’s marketplace full of clothing, furniture, leather goods, home accessories, and vintage books. The brainchild of Davide Berruto and Camilla Trigano, of eco-friendly Environment Furniture (environmentfurniture.com), the 4,200-square-foot space is open through May, selling goods made by American brands such as RTH, Save Khaki, and Jacob Bromwell. Reminiscent of a hip downtown loft, the shop bills itself as “part showroom, part salon” with a book nook, courtesy of Arcana, cozy couch lounging area, and coffee corner pouring lattes and like made with LA’s Handsome Coffee beans. Shop a bit, sit a spell, support American brands—we like it. 161 South La Brea Blvd., LA, 323-936-0225
