Los Angeles Rive Gauche : Sunlight !
The Californian sun continues its mad dash and energises the city as it reaches its peak. It’s all about outdoor activities, with pride of place for sporty and casual “Californian lifestyle” brands: bikes, sportswear, surf and skate equipment, beach accessories, casual ready-to-wear and takeaway snacks.
And to really feel like you’re on Venice Beach, discover an impressive suspended skate park, designed by modern-day skate legend Scott Oster!

The Californian “Angelina” embodies an urban yet natural lifestyle, dividing her time between PoundFit sessions and surfing lessons.

In terms of style, for a Californian city and beach look opt for the Elder Statesman’s sweaters. Made from super-soft natural fabrics, the patterns are lively and the colors audacious. The final touch ? An embroidered palm tree bringing you directly to Venice Beach.

When it comes to accessories, the leather goods brand Clare Vivier marries ever-fashionable Parisian charm with Californian simplicity: her striped wallets and mini geometric bags are timeless.
For sunglasses that are 100% Made in LA, Garret Leight designs and hand-makes each pair in his Venice Beach workshop. And for shoes, there’s nothing better than a pair of slip-on trainers – choose pastel tones such as off-white or pale pink.
And because September is the time for positive resolutions, why not make the most of it to get (back) on your bike, learn to skateboard or have a go at basketball?

It’s lunch time, and to mark the occasion La Table, the restaurant of the Grande Epicerie, is celebrating the West Coast with a drive-in feel and Californian diner fare: nachos, burgers, ribs and hot-dogs are a must! Of course, the healthier side of Los Angeles is also making an appearance, with a “kabbouleh” (tabbouleh with kale) and local mahi-mahi.
It’s just like being in Los Angeles!
