What started as a collaboration between handbag designer Clare Vivier and bauble maker Kathryn Bentley has split into two fabulous outposts. Vivier now lays claim to the shop on the corner of Micheltorena and Sunset, while Bentley helms Dream Collective. A bright, ethereal space, DC stocks handmade leather goods from the likes of Beatrice Valenzuela, as well as her own eponymous line from which you’ll find cuffs, rings, and statement jewelry crafted from wood, brass, bone, and some semi-precious stones.
Dream Collective, 1404 Micheltorena Street (at West Sunset Boulevard); 323-660-2000.
