Following on the dress trains of other popular Australian labels Zimmerman and BNKR, sustainable clothing brand Bassike opened its doors in Los Angeles late last year.

Bassike’s Venice storefront—its first in the U.S.—is filled with minimalist cotton jersey basics (slouch pants, tanks, skirts), plus low-slung denim, knit kimono sweaters, and textured coats and dresses. The line’s neutral color palette of blacks, whites, grays and tans, and its modern approach to dressing with cool oversized and asymmetrical pieces, make it easy to incorporate into your existing wardrobe while adding a hint of international appeal.

The sleek, modern design of the shop, with an open floor plan highlighted by natural skylights, white oak fitting rooms, and marble furniture (all manufactured locally in L.A.), carries through to the clean lines of its men’s, women’s and children’s apparel for a seamless shopping experience.

And if Bassike’s refined elegance wasn’t already Venice enough for you, its commitment to organic and sustainable clothing makes it a legit addition to the neighborhood. Block-mates Late Sunday Afternoon and Christy Dawn share Bassike’s casually conscious vibes, as does insider favorite restaurant Superba Food + Bread, so you can make a day of feel-good shopping and dining while exploring this emerging stretch of Lincoln Blvd. in Venice.
