Every few moons, we make sure to rejigger our creative flame with what we call "inspiration field trips". Whether it's finally sitting down with those coffee-table books or visiting Ojai to unplug and recharge, we set aside precious time to be stimulated by what the world — and L.A. — is trying to tell us.
Naturally, these jaunts tend to take a big bite out of our busy schedules, so when we're in need of a fresh outlook and squeezed for time, we visit LACMA. But, it's not just to gawk at legendary works of art: We grab a cocktail at Stark Bar; nosh on a sandwich on the law; or shoot some selfies with Chris Burden's Urban Light sculpture.
Well, it's no secret that we share our appreciation for this Miracle Mile landmark with other Angelenos, which is why the museum's recent collaborations with Haley Alexander van Oosten of L’Oeil du Vert, Maryam and Marjan Malakpour of NewbarK, and Juan Carlos Obando for Wear LACMA are purchases we can't wait to scoop. Whether you're an art history buff or just looking to incorporate some hometown pride into your wardrobe (all three brands are L.A.-based), pull out that membership card and cruise over to the museum ASAP. Considering all proceeds go towards LACMA, we have a feeling even the most discerning collector won't pass up these beauts!
