Ever since we first visited Dream Collective, the new Silver Lake boutique from local jewelry maven Kathryn Bentley, we’ve scarce been able to sleep.
The moment our head hits the pillow we feverishly fixate on the shop’s interior, with its stained glass windows, whimsical twirling mobiles, and colorful collages by local artist Caitlin Wylde.
Who needs sheep when we’re counting Bentley’s well-edited wares (Jesse Kamm dresses and limited-edition moon totes, Beatrice Valenzuela reclaimed leather moccasins, and bags by metalsmith Samantha Grisdale) instead?
Tossing and turning, we scheme of ways to save our pennies for pieces from Bentley’s eponymous fine jewelry collection (amulet pendants, tourmaline earrings). Dream Collective, her more accessible tribal costume line, is no snooze either.
Visions of Bentley herself hammering away in the back studio carry us into the wee hours.
This shop’s got coolness covered from A to zzz’s.
