kickback Cali

Last photo shoot with the girls was so enjoyable- we decided to do another, and then another.

The second shoot took place at a friend's store in Venice- The Stronghold. Michael and his partners took the brand's concept all the way & the beautiful space tells a story of quality denim and craftsmanship. The Stronghold is the 4th oldest denim brand EVER and every detail is as authentic as possible- i.e. sewing the jeans in-house to decking out the space in time-period furniture.

Shooting on Abbott Kinney played well with kickback Cali themed vintage clothes. Friends stopped by to hang out and I lucked out when The Stronghold's close friend Patty Perreira loaned me 70 pairs of sunglasses from her new line: Barton Perreira. A previous designer for Oliver Peoples (!!) - she and another OP exec started Barton Perreira a few years ago. The high-end line sells everywhere from Neiman Marcus to cool niche boutiques like The Golden State, so I was more than excited to incorporate them with the L.A. Vintage Exchange picks.
