The Shop has been garnering a lot of good press, I'm so honored to be included in the coverage.
RF29 ran this one!

This is what they say:
"And it's about freakin’ time! We love the Standard, and its brand-new-and-improved shop is more incentive to go to LA. It was totally redesigned by the Standard team and Commune (awesome LA-based design firm) so it's got that chic, modern allure (expect bright magenta, high-gloss lacquer cabinetry in contrast with a dark green marble floor.
Design aside, it’s the actual merchandise that had us at hello. They are all produced and made by locally based designers, including jewelry, clothing, accessories and more. Think rad, quirky stuff, too, like Mimobots flash drives, Ksubi Skeleton sunglasses, WOW Yoshimoto Nara artist towels, limited edition clutches by Clare Vivier and fun Kid Robot toys. Loving it, but super-bummed we're going to miss the actual opening date (August 24).
