General Fashion Order No. 64:
As per requisitions from local authorities, the Venice Beach battalion shall trade in all Hawaiian shirts, Jams, and huaraches and be furnished with new uniforms from the Steven Alan Annex, now open on Abbot Kinney.
While the first West Coast outpost on Robertson solely stocks the signature label, at the second, cadets will drop for classic his and hers shirting, wide-leg chambray trousers, and grandma-chic Bass sandals. Breezy sundresses from Lauren Moffatt and bomber jackets by Rag & Bone will be assigned to ranking female superiors. Male cadets report for duty in Acne and A.P.C. denim as well as spiffy The Generic Man high-tops.
New-wave shades by Super, delicate vintage watches, and Mayle handbags are standard issue. Off-duty officers are free to wear punchy Lover swimsuits and counter the effects of sunburn with sweet-smelling organic lotions from Patyka.
No need to await further instructions.
Steven Alan Annex, 1601 Abbot Kinney Boulevard, at Palms Boulevard, Venice (310-452-3413 or stevenalan.com).
